Wired reports that the FBI subpoenaed the Internet Archive and demanded that Brewster Kahle (the Archive’s founder) provide records about one of the library’s registered users, asking for the user’s name, address and activity on the site. The FBI used a National Security Letter...
Via Tim Armstrong at Info/Law, I learned today that the Harvard Law School faculty voted to create an online open access repository of their scholarship. To me, the vastly more interesting and provocative part of Tim’s post is a news item that I missed 10 days ago: Berkman Center...
A U.S. District Judge has enjoined a defendant from using a term for its business. That is not an unusual result. The one part of the order that may be of note is that the defendant is not allowed to purchase ad words using the plaintiff’s mark and the defendant must use negative adwords...

Posts by others that caught my eye recently: Rebecca Tushnet summarizes a very interesting public discussion on Bridgeman v. Corel, the district court opinion by Judge Kaplan, now nine years old, that holds that copyright does not attach to especially good photographic reproductions of public...
With so many interesting information law and policy topics floating around the blogosphere, you would think that something more, well, substantial, would catch my eye. But instead I’ve been hooked by cardboard boxes. Out of Denver yesterday came the news that a man was threatened with a...
