Let's just say that someone had a copy of the Eldred [ ] Supreme Court transcripts, culled from the generous-yet-decidedly-proprietary [ ] databanks of Lexis-Nexis [ ]. Could that someone then go ahead and publish the transcripts on her weblog?

I've been tossing this particular "hypothetical" around with Aaron Silverstein [ ]. Am waiting to hear from a few Berkmanites [ ]. If you're so inspired, please do send me an email with your call on the issue [ ].

Whoa. Update as I write. You deliberate, you lose. Aaron Swartz just beat me to the punch [ ].
