Copyright in the form we understand it today has been going for 300 years. In turn it inspires, protects, confuses and exasperates us. There is scarcely any form of message, or medium for conveying it, that is unaffected by copyright (or author's right, as civil law tradition prefers to call it) and by rights ancillary to it.
This weblog seeks to provide a newsy, non-polarised, vibrant forum for the spread of current information concerning copyight in all its forms, as well as a community resource for lawyers, authors and creators, carriers, legal historians, information economists -- and the just plain curious.
