Until there is a penalty for bringing a nuisance claim against an obvious fair-use, I don’t think the rate of such claims will drop.

Fair use is not a right as long as the cost is endless litigation.

I have two questions about the legal portions of the post:

  • Why didn’t the betamax case resolve the legal issues for ReplayTV before they were bled dry by legal fees? Couldn’t a judge look at the case and say we already have an answer on this one?
  • and…

  • Is there any way to fix the problem of “obliteration through litigation”? It seems enormously unjust that a company (or individual) can be shut down merely because they can’t afford to fight it legally.

As for the collective nouns, my vote is for chain.

A chain of blogs (giving the idea of linking on to the other).

A chorus of posts (as many posts simply add weight to an idea linking and pointing with a little comment).
