Copyfight: The politics of IP

About this site

Here we'll explore the nexus of legal rulings, Capitol Hill policy-making, technical standards development and technological innovation that create--and will recreate--the networked world as we know it. Translating legalese and technical language into plain English, we'll keep you updated on battles and decisions likely to impact the technology industry, talking to key players to help us understand not only the underlying forces shaping these decisions but also what they actually mean. Among the topics we'll touch on: intellectual property conflicts, technical architecture and innovation, the evolution of copyright, private vs. public interests in Net policy-making, lobbying and the law, and more.
