What Jack Valenti is Really Saying
Ernest Miller of Yale Law School's LawMeme has a hilarious and insightful annotation of Jack Valenti's ZDNet Interview.
Having been in the industry, I was shocked when I had real conversations with lawyers who didn't realize that Fair Use was more than a defense against copyright infringement charges (check out the 1972 Sound Recordings act and the Audio Home Recording Act to see Congress affirm that consumers have a right to fair use) or understand the prior restraint of free speech issues surrounding the anti-circumvention sections of the DMCA or the proposed CBDTPA.
