Talks Larry Lessig: How creativity is being strangled by the law

,----[ Quote ]
| Larry Lessig gets TEDsters to their feet, whooping and whistling, following 
| this elegant presentation of “three stories and an argument.” The Net’s most 
| adored lawyer brings together John Philip Sousa, celestial copyrights, and 
| the “ASCAP cartel” to build a case for creative freedom.   



Lessig: Required Reading: the next 10 years

,----[ Quote ]
| Yet governments continue to push ahead with this idiot idea -- both Britain
| and Japan for example are considering extending existing terms. Why?
| The answer is a kind of corruption of the political process. Or better,
| a "corruption" of the political process. I don't mean corruption in the
| simple sense of bribery. I mean "corruption" in the sense that the
| system is so queered by the influence of money that it can't even get
| an issue as simple and clear as term extension right.


BitTorrent Admin Monitored by US Government, Forced to Dump Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Sk0t, an ex-administrator of the EliteTorrents BitTorrent tracker is to have 
| his internet connection forcibly monitored by the US Government. If that 
| wasn’t bad enough, the monitoring software is Windows based - which means he 
| is being forced to ditch Linux - or face being barred from the internet.
