Declan follows up on the User Friendly cartoon. And Judge Jackson resurfaces. The industry is looking to kill off the CD (wonder why?). I read about the IFPI report in Europe; now I have the link. And the New York Times suggests that Slashdot may be doing something right
A first look at fallout from the Eldred v. Ashcroft argument is given in the New York Times today. Of course, Donna has assembled a vast amount of information that’s going to take me hours to get through!
Something for the TPP students in ESD.10 as a followup to the “Practice Makes Perfect” we did on October 9th about language
And I’ve learned my lesson – no more links to MSNBC hosted Newsweek articles – they age them away – so here’s a permalink to Glitterati v. Geeks, before it dies. I’ve lost all my other great Steven Levy bits from there except the Palladium article, hosted at cryptome. Worse, MSNBC won’t even let me search and pay for an old copy. That’s why I never do a Technology Review link anymore either; it’s not just because they betrayed their original editorial base when they turned it into a gee-whiz “entrepreneur” mag. The New York Times at least maintains the integrity of an article link, and you can at least retrieve the text for money if you forgot.

- Declan McCullagh hopes we’ll get a careful consideration of the flaws in the DMCA this time around in DC. Declan’s arguments raise interesting echo of Charlie Nesson’s thinking on this subject (not to mention Jessica Litman!). John Borland at CNet/ZDNet has a description as well. Law.com has “a little bit” on this, too
- The Register describes more wecasting royalty shenanigans!
- Judge Jackson has resurfaced in Legal times (via law.com) to discuss his views on judges and the press. Slashdot gives the pointers necessary to read between the lines.
John Borland describes the upsurge in RIAA scrutiny of campus file sharing. More of the RIAA “education” campaign, I’m sure. With TalkBacks.
- The New York Times talks to the litigators in Eldred v. Ashcroft and gets some of their views. Larry’s thoughts and links are on his blog. Donna’s Copyfight has tons of informative links – start here and keep on looking! Don’t miss it.

- Making My Own Music, Kevin Kelley; NYTimes Op-Ed (an important and different perspective on the benefits of widespread dissemination of digital tech – see Ernest Miller’s take at LawMeme)
- From the Front Line, Larry Lessig, Lessig Weblog
- LawMeme’s several pieces: Live from Eldred v. Ashcroft I; Live from Eldred v. Ashcroft II; News Coverage of Eldred v. Ashcroft
