Ernie the Attorney on the recent Richard Posner speech criticising the expansion of copyright law. Doc Searls on IP v Net protocols at Comdex.
Findlaw article on the Pavlovich DeCSS case. Jurisdiction depending on intent and what constitues an active or passive website? Ernest Miller doesn't consider it too enlightening a commentary, though.
Is this real or a sad reflection of the risk aversity we're locking ourselves into as a society? Not a very bright thing to do but is saying on a bus "We're going to the taliban don't worry about it" sufficient to create this kind of fuss? Apparently so. I guess this is one bus driver who won't be making any more terrorist jokes.
