Sort by: Date / Title / URL

  1. Retroactive extensions! Those will sure encourage innovation. So shameful.
  2. Nice copyfight article from 1997.
  3. Classic essay.
  4. I have no idea how this got into my open tabs. I disagree a lot. But it's good rant.
  5. The calculator is no coincidence. Apple simple copied it.
  6. Cute publicity stunt that tries to show pirates what it feels like. I have pretty mixed feelings about the whole thing but I think it is a nice little hack.
  7. Nice summary of the bruhaha over the republic memo calling for copyright reform. That will teach them.
  8. Interesting. But does it really matter?
  9. "For several years Georgia State was involved in litigation over the fair use doctrine. Specifically a consortium of publishers backed by Oxford, Cambridge and Sage sued Georgia State over copyright violations by many of the faculty. A decision has now been rendered. The Court backed Georgia State in almost every instance, finding no copyright violation. However, the Court did lay down some rules - in particular you can use no more than 10% or one chapter, whichever is shorter, of any book."
  10. I don't know what pinterest is, but it sounds like it may be violating copyright law.
  11. What a mess! The US government takes down JotForm because somebody put something shady online.
  12. Kim Dotcom is like Sean Fanning meets Kim Jong-Il.
  13. Overview of a new book called "How To Fix Copyright" which sounds like something I could get behind.
  14. Interesting pane from an Italian meeting called the "Share Festival". I haven't watched the whole thing but the parts I've seen seem reasonably intriguing -- although a few of the people are definitely of the sort of European-free culture "usual suspects" group and so may not have a lot new to say to you.
  15. Simple little article on the history of piracy by Christine Schweidler and Sasha Constanza-Chock.
  16. Sounds complicated.
  17. "How could the flow of high-quality music continue despite sharp reductions in firms’ ability to appropriate revenue. The puzzle’s resolution may lie in the observation that technological change has not only reduced effective demand; it has also reduced costs of bringing music to market. The costs of creation, promotion, and distribution have all been revolutionised by new information and communications technologies."
  18. CC announces the 4.0 process for their new licenses. And it basically looks great. The one exception is the revaluation of the database stuff. The language about not making this works is wise and smart, but it's also going pretty hard to imagine how they could walk that line. The situation now is CC zero for data, or nothing. Anything CC does is going to make that situation worse.

  19. "Here’s a provocative talk by Michael Heller about the problems of private ownership."
  20. Wow! Awesome news.
  21. Awesome new organization. I love it.
  22. Amazing. Downhill battle is back!
  23. What a mess.
