In 1709 (or was it 1710?) the Statute of Anne created the first purpose-built copyright law. This blog, founded just 300 short and unextended years later, is dedicated to all things copyright, warts and all.

Three pints and you're out? Not quite ...
From Jim Killock (Executive Director, Open Rights Group) comes news of a pub meeting which is coming up very soon -- next Monday, in fact. Whether you are in favour of "three strikes" or against it, and support the objectives of the Open Rights Group or oppose them, you should make an effort to attend if this subject is of interest to you. The speaker, Francis Davey, has made many thoughtful contributions to the various ongoing copyright debates by virtue of the carefully expressed and courteously phrased comments which he has posted in response to the words of others on the blogosphere.
Details of who is attending the meeting can be found here.
