  2. By rights, copyright really shouldn't apply to binary executables, because they are purely "functional" (not "expressive") works. The decision to extend copyright to binaries was an economically-motivated anomaly, and that choice has some counter-intuitive and detrimental side-effects. What would things in the free software world look like if the courts had decided otherwise? For one thing, the implementation of copyleft would have to be completely different.

    Hypothetical? Academic? Not if you're a hardware developer! Because this is exactly what the law _does_ look like for designs for physical hardware (where the product is not protected by copyright).

  4. Copyright law is "interesting" to say the least, and incredibly contentious. For some, it is an evil that stifles progress. For others, it is all that stands between them and bankruptcy.

  6. A poorly educated workforce is a lower production workforce. In short, copyright ideology substantially lowers GDP.

    The Flexbooks initiative aims to provide textbooks for K-12 under the CC-BY-SA licence. The obnoxious (and anti-social) ‘-NC’ is absent. Thank heavens these are enlightened educators!

  7. **** Update - This issue has now been resolved, payment has been agreed and an apology received **** The Independent is a national and commercial newspaper in the UK. On the 5 – 6 January 2010 they used the Flickr API to search for and display images of snow scenes in the UK – amongst those images displayed was one of mine which is clearly marked on Flickr as “all rights reserved”. They did not seek my permission for the use of my image. I am assuming they used the API without applying a filter on the licence type, this also means that other UK photographers may have had their copyrighted work used without permission; might be worth checking if you had any refers from the Independent on those days. Below, is a summary of the messages that have been exchanged between myself and Jimmy Leach the Editorial Director for Digital at The Independent; I found their initial reply both surprising and alarming.

  8. Eurocinema, un'associazione di produttori di film, ha martedì inviato una petizione al Parlamento Europeo al fine di sostenere il rapporto Gallo. Ad un'analisi più approfondita la petizione presenta sia firme falsificate, sia firme di persone morte.

  10. I occassionally use my local Walmart for some printing, and on a few occassions they have challenged the legitimacy of the work requiring me to sign copyright documents certifying that I a hold the copyrights for the image.

    Today, I witnessed them challenge an individual who said that a portrait was not a professional shot. Come to find out it was a 'school photo' and Wal-mart would not let the cutstomer have the pics ... likely pro work that had been scanned in and cropped to omit the photogs logo / watermark.

    The customer had divulged to me while we were waiting that she had uploaded them from home (as I do at times too). Walmart told her that unless she had a copyright release from either the school or the photographer, Wal-mart was unable to give her the pics ... and did not.
