Myths About Collages
By Elliot Zimmerman on Sunday, June 10, 2012 - 10:32 AM
Emerging Legal Issues
Collage is considered fair use, and therefore not subject to copyright law. The doctrine of fair use protects educational and scholarly purposes such as news reporting, literary criticism, and libraries. Artistic uses are not explicitly protected by fair use, and commercial uses are explicitly not protected.

My collage can freely use copyrighted material, as long as I use no more than 5% / 10% / a small amount of the original work. The doctrine of "de minimis" theoretically protects minimal copying, but it's vague and difficult to pin down.

By Elliot Zimmerman on Monday, April 02, 2007 - 08:25 PM
Emerging Legal Issues
EMI will be offering, at a greater price, higher quality digital music downloads without digital rights management ("DRM") through Apple's ITunes Store in addition to its lower quality restricted catalog.

We'll have to gaze into our crystal balls to determine whether distributing unprotected MP3s will help expand the market and what effect this will have on music piracy.

Internet Addiction
By Elliot Zimmerman on Thursday, February 22, 2007 - 07:30 AM
Emerging Legal Issues
DAXING, China - Sun Jiting spends his days locked behind metal bars in this military-run installation, put there by his parents. The 17-year-old high school student is not allowed to communicate with friends back home, and his only companions are psychologists, nurses and other patients. Each morning at 6:30, he is jolted awake by a soldier in fatigues shouting, "This is for your own good!"

Sun's offense: Internet addiction.

Possible Technical Defense Against P2P Infringement Claims
By Elliot Zimmerman on Tuesday, January 27, 2004 - 05:31 AM
Emerging Legal Issues
It is technically possible for hackers to feign an IP address. A while back, Intel branded all Pentium 4 (and better) chips with a unique code in order to identify the computer at an IP address. AMD does not brand its processors with such a code.Is this a possible defense to a claim of copyright infringement (i.e. although it appears that the infringer's IP address was involved in the infringing activity, how do we know his/her computer was involved?).
