I got to vent a little more about the sad state of the Slashdot community in today’s H2O discussion cycle as a part of the ILaw followup.
A couple of news items. And a sad typo (that I expect will get fixed) in a guest commentary at Findlaw today.
(8 items listed below)
Salon has an article suggesting that Palladium won’t be that bad, if only because Microsoft didn’t get to where it is by angering customers. Maybe, although the new licensing schemes haven’t made anyone happy.
- A tragic typo in the title of an essay at Findlaw’s Writ on the 2600 decision not to appeal the latest round of DeCSS desicions. A reasonable summary, but a real downer of a conslusion.
- Illiad has Hilary Rosen in his sights, again.
- Declan McCullagh’s Politch mailing list has a posting suggesting that the lawsuits of Gnutella users may be starting up soon.
- Pressplay replaces their CEO
- Film88 has got the MPAA anxious enough to sue, whatever its next incarnation will be.
- The New York Times posts a profile of software piracy guranteed to rile up someone – a look at the DrinkorDie team as they go to jail.
- Donna points out on Copyfight a pending (July 17) workshop on DRM that is soliciting comments in advance.
