FCC Out of Copyright
Tim Wu says that copyright is the FCC's Vietnam, and that it "should be looking for a graceful exit strategy."
I couldn't have said it better myself (literally). Thank you, Tim.
Later: Ernie Miller takes issue with Wu's assertion that the FCC wants out of copyright: "The biggest flaw with Wu's argument...is that he doesn't explain why the FCC approved the broadcast flag in the first place less than a year ago. The broadcast flag ruling was, to borrow a court term, well-briefed on both sides. It isn't as if the FCC didn't realize what they were doing. Has anything changed in the last year to make the FCC regret their rash judgement?"
