New York Times on Copyright and Fair Use in Digital Age

This week, the New York Times is hosting a running debate about copyright, digital rights management, sampling and fair use between Rick Cotton, General Counsel of NBC, and Tim Wu, Professor of Law, Columbia University. This provides some good reading about the complexities and nuances at the intersection of law and technology, from two people with very different opinions.

Update! While you're in the reading mood, Tim Wu also had an article on Slate a few days ago regarding AT&T making noises about whether the time was right for them to start filtering for copyrighted content at the network level.
