'Copyhype' joins the blogosphere
Just a quick plug for the new copyright blog "Copyhype," by recent law school graduate Terry Hart. Hart has a very smart post debunking the superficial and ultimately silly argument that copyright infringement must never be referred to as "theft" because the Supreme Court held in Dowling v. United States, 473 U.S. 207 (1985), that the National Stolen Property Act, 18 U. S. C. § 2314, does not apply to interstate transportation of bootleg records. And he does important work in demolishing much of the disinformation about ACTA by carefully comparing what the proposed agreement says to actual US law. A very welcome addition to the copyright blogosphere.
