random quotes ... to amuse, inspire, enrage:
  The idea that a government can give the people their freedom is ridiculous. Any power strong enough to give the people what they want is also powerful enough to take it away. Freedom is handmade. It only occurs when individuals manufacture it for themselves.

covers & licenses to cover

Tuesday, June 28th, 2005 10:35 am

Slate just ran an article on cover albums (“Copycats – The cover album makes a comeback” by Franklin Bruno, 2005/6/23), which is interesting timing considering that the Register of Copyrights has proposed to eliminate the compulsory cover license. [Lessig covers (ahem) the issue and responds to commentary from Importance of Being Ernest and Joe Gratz].
