    A lawsuit has been filed in a U.S. court in San Francisco, saying that computer software should not be protected by copyright laws designed for music, literature and other creative works.

    I feel that the protections like copyright are required for the software industry to thrive, but for a period of time closer to that of patents. Eleboration on my opinion can be found here:

    Congratulations for the launch of Creative Commons Italy and for your excellent work.

    I’m afraid that the right website link should point to http://creativecommons.it.

    Not related to this post, but I don’t see an email address and thought you ought to know about this.

    Have you seen today’s Wired story about how documentaries have to license copyrighted footage? Eyes on the Prize can no longer be shown, because the filmmakers have lost the rights! I’ve blogged the whole thing here.

    Dunno if there are any ways fair use can (or should) help, but I thought you should be aware of it.
