April Fool In an abrupt about-face that has fattened the coffers of academia, LawMeme announced its new appointment as Voice of the Copyright Industry. Equally foolish: the Iowa law firm of Beckman & Hirsch has installed a Web cam in its reception room, according to the ABA Journal. A member of the firm says it helps him gauge a client's mood before they meet. And, that it helps him track down his partner when he slips out to an empty desk in the camera's line of sight to get some uninterrupted work done. (Access to the camera's feed is password-protected and encrypted, so no, we can't all enjoy these fascinating images...)
