I'm doing a lot of narrating my attention flow here this week, because what's catching my attention seems — understandably enough, to me — pretty compelling:
- YouTube continues to illuminate the legal profession
- Two big pieces of news from Beet.TV: CNETTV.com and AOL Video ("[I]f it's out there, well find it. This is a place where we are aggregating and indexing video from any source imaginable on the web, whether its YouYube or Google or CBS or NBC....")
- Ken Fisher at Ars Technica examines place-shifting: [C]hallenges present and future paint a rough picture for innovation
- Also from Ars: George Lucas: YouTube Star War parodies can stay
- C.E. Petit: "Just what we need: Hollywood against the gambling industry in a race to see who can get a stealth amendment in its favor tacked on to some otherwise-unrelated legislation."
- Rebecca Tushnet on on CollegeNET, Inc. v. XAP Corporation, 2006 WL 2037457 (D. Or.): "If I make money by delivering eyeballs to my clients, is there a Lanham Act violation when I lie to get those eyeballs? My intuition is yes, at least for defendants like Google and XAP – but I'd have to draw the line at communicative products, like a newspaper with articles by Jayson Blair."
- [Update]: Also, don't miss John Palfrey's coverage of Professor Lessig on interoperability at Wikimania.
