A Proposal to Address the Potential Demise of Newspapers
Recently on his blog that he shares with Gary Becker, Judge Posner proposed an expansion of copyright law to ban linking/paraphrasing of newspaper stories in an effort to ensure the viability of the industry. His proposal, not surprisingly, is being discussed by many. To find a vast selection of them, just search "Posner" and "copyright." While the Judge's proposal seems extreme, such extreme ideas lead to discussion, analysis, and - hopefully - resolution.
