Not So Hypothetical
Copyfight: the politics of IP
October 17, 2002
Let's just say that someone had a copy of the Eldred [ http://eldred.cc/ ] Supreme Court transcripts, culled from the generous-yet-decidedly-proprietary [ http://www.reed-elsevier.com/ ] databanks of Lexis-Nexis [ http://www.lexisnexis.com/ ]. Could that someone then go ahead and publish the transcripts on her weblog?
I've been tossing this particular "hypothetical" around with Aaron Silverstein [ http://1715.blogspot.com/ ]. Am waiting to hear from a few Berkmanites [ http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/ ]. If you're so inspired, please do send me an email with your call on the issue [ firstname.lastname@example.org ].
Whoa. Update as I write. You deliberate, you lose. Aaron Swartz just beat me to the punch [ http://www.aaronsw.com/weblog/000669 ].
