Had a proposal to finish up this AM, so I’m running a little behind.
Ernest Miller has had an active morning, and critiques Prof. Hamilton’s take on the Supremes. I, however, enjoyed the title of the article on the global search for a safe haven for Sharman Networks - Next Stop, Kazaakhstan. He’s also found at least some of the New Democrat Coalition are not GPL-bashers.
Update: Interesting to come back here and see that I’m apparently channeling Slashdot today.
(8 items listed below)
- Marci Hamilton at FindLaw’s Write doesn’t expect Eldred to pass Supreme Court muster, but she expects copyright is going to have to change. LawMeme discusses the peculiarities of Prof. Hamilton’s construction of the argument presented.
- FindLaw also has an article with a cute title about KaZaA’s global search for a P2P-free zone
- LawMeme also ferrets out (as does LinuxToday) an article stating that at least some members of the New Democrat Coalition are not opposed to the GPL (See yesterday’s posting) As I presumed yesterday, Microsoft is the leading comtributor to the originator of the letter, Rep. Adam Smith of Washington.
- Copyright policy run amuck - from Wired News’s Brad King, Band Can’t Sell Own Music On Ebay - Slashdot discussion
- Declan discusses the future of Berman-Coble at ZDNet/CNet. Another Slashdot discussion
- Lisa Bowman shows that copyright enforcement is getting more and more intrusive, nonsensical and threatening each day.
- Meanwhile,Declan shows Google caving in to this sort of pressure. Slashdot discussion. See also the WWW site summarizing and linking to several of Jonathan Zittrain’s and Ben Edelman’s studies on this filtering issue. - or, see Ben’s posting to GrepLaw
- In the ever-evolving online music business, Listen.com will sell you the right to burn a CD on your computer that includes their content. Slashdot weighs in on this, too.
