T in Oklahoma (Okiemockbird) Copyright thugs (26) RE: Copyright thugs 01 Jan 01

The freedoms the public is supposed to enjoy under copyright can be known by the following shorthand phrases:

(1) public domain

(2) first sale doctrine

(3) fair use

(4) idea/expression

(5) fact/expression

Here is a news article describing the latest attack on the first sale doctrine. That it is couched simply as a "request" strikes doesn't impress me much. I consider this an attack on my freedom, even if the so-called "authors'" guild doesn't so intend it.
