Lessig Alert

I'd like to alert all 3 of you readers to a chat today at 1pm (EDT/-04:00 GMT) with Lawrence Lessig, a student of copyright law. It is his contention that the entertainment industry is abusing Congress to be able to abuse Copyright Law -- to lock up ideas perpetually. To cynics, the latest copyright extension act is known as the Mickey Mouse Protection act, as it was passed just in time to keep Mickey out of the public domain.

For more info, Lessig writes for his own website, much like this one, except that it's better written, more focused, has more readers, and the author may have a degree in something or other.
