My favorite David Abrams: We don't need no stinkin' Court Order...

When you spend as much time lurking on the Internet playing in social media as I do, you tend to develop a bookmark folder of some of your favorite "Ahhhhhhh moments." One of mine that you may find useful is a report by David Abrams regarding creative ways people use the DMCA.

For those of you who never bothered to read the DMCA, here's the official Copyright Office summary in PDF.

It is a portion of the last line of David's report that will make a smart cookie sit up and take notice of the significance of the trend that has been growing on-line: "...where the information is arguably of public interest, the DMCA allows the copyright holder to circumvent the normal weighing of interests that a court would make in deciding whether to issue a preliminary injunction to stop distribution of the document."

If you really want to understand the significance of this to you as a writer, Standford University did a wonderful link summary on Copyright & Fair Use.

I am going to have breakfast and settle in at Starbucks to do some research writing after I finish my morning jog. Will check in with you guys later and see what kind of e-mail this puppy generates. ;-)
