Some interesting work by Chicago's Cass Sunstein over at Lessig's blog.

Senate affirms NIH Public Access policy.

Norway moves towards open file formats.

Western art piracy by Chinese interests.


More opinion on the Noveck patent proposal. General concensus seems to be the same as mine: good idea, impossible to implement. The proposal itself. Note the title's literary reference.
