I really like the things I hear Pete Ashdown saying about copyright. He seems to side with Lawrence Lessig whom I've written favorably about before. On a recent blog entry (ht SLC Spin), Ashdown thanked a blogger for an endorsement and then got into a bit of a debate on the copyright issue. I think it was very informative discussion. Copyright is certainly a tricky issue, especially since we are involved in so many international treaties on the subject. I do hope we are able to amend our laws to do something more common sensical.
