A Worthwhile Hour of Your Time (post-SOPA)
After the victory rush of defeating SOPA/PIPA it has felt like attacks were renewed on all fronts. There's the C-11 mess in Canada, and another bad bill proposed in the US Congress. And of course, the beast that is ACTA still lumbers along. Trying to put it all together is daunting, at least for me. If you find yourself similarly confused and overwhelmed, let me recommend you kick back for an hour with Michael Geist's latest keynote talk
Professor Geist has always been one of the go-to guys for clear analysis of major legislative battles in the Copyright Wars, and a keynote talk has a format that lends itself to engaging summarization. This address, which he just posted a couple days ago, was given at University of South Florida in St. Petersburg. It's just under an hour and I think will help us all think more clearly about the current state of the immediate post-SOPA world.
