Great article; but two minor corrections:

1. - About halfway down, in the section subtitled "How does a limited term to copyright serve to promote the progress of the useful arts?", there are images of two paintings, one by Diego Velazquez, one by Pablo Picasso. The caption misidentifies each of these as the other (i.e., there is a "Left vs. Right" discrepancy).

2. - About 3/4 of the way down in the section subtitled "Back to the Future", there are references and links to two off-site articles. The first of these, referencing a presentation by Lawrence Lessig to the Open Source Software Convention (OSCON) in 2002, is a dead link. But you can find a transcript of the presentation in question at http://www.oreillynet.com/lpt/a/2641 and/or http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/policy/2002/08/15/lessig.html. Alternate versions in Adobe Flash (yuck!), .MP3 audio, and PowerPoint (yuck!, again) formats are available at http://randomfoo.net/oscon/2002/lessig/.


Wow. Good call on the paintings. Of course, I'm slightly dyslexic, and any other excuses I can think of. I guess it proves that I attract readers of above average intelligence, and they actually read what I write. I'm impressed.

re: the links. I knew they had been removed but all the substitutes I could find were inferior to the original from Lessig's site. Thought it probably didn't matter any more with an old article. (I'll make those links live in your comment so they're easier to follow.)

I also fixed the right/left reference to accommodate readers who don't get to the comments.

Thanks for the comment.
