Hart on Copyright

Terry Hart has posted two articles on copyright law in his Copyhype blog:
  • In The Reverse Class Action Lawsuit: Challenges of Enforcing Copyright Online, he looks at the strategy behind a lawsuit that's been filed by an adult film producer against a class of alleged infringers. You read that right: class actions usually are cases filed by a class of plaintiffs against a single defendant; this case is one filed by a single plaintiff against a class of defendants.
  • In Copyright and Censorship, he surveys the ever-lengthening history of the perceived conflict between copyright law and the First Amendment.
