Copyright Genius

I've just learned that Bill Patry, whom I first met back in the days when I worked with Chuck Ossola on ASMP's lobbying efforts in DC, has a blog. I've added a link (http://williampatry.blogspot.com)and you should definitely read him. Bill is an absolutely brilliant copyright lawyer whose treatise is always close by in my personal law library.

I must confess to being a little concerned that he's now a senior counsel for Google. Despite its "don't be evil motto" and its crowning as the best place to work (yes, I too could get into the perks), I worry that Google is making its money by ripping off individual creators who don't get the benefit of those lovely benefits Keith Olbermann reported on last night.
