Two quick items:
1. The Supreme Court decided the eBay case today, one of the key patent decisions before the Court this Term. The opinion is here; eBay wins; the syllabus is below the fold.
2. If you are into C&C—that would be content & carriage—the New York Times had three very interesting articles yesterday. Start with Kevin Kelly’s “Scan this Book.” The article is worth more attention in a subsequent post, but here is what I tag as the most interesting/controversial suggestion: “Copyrights must be counterbalanced by copyduties. In exchange for public protection of a work's copies (what we call copyright), a creator has an obligation to allow that work to be searched. No search, no copyright.” Then read Richard Siklos’s Media Frenzy column on the tricky issues in converging TVs and PCs. Finally, read Jacques Steinberg’s piece on the current state of moving TV content to the Internet and the difficulties that can arise from divided ownership.
