Copyright abolition?

Now there's a concept I haven't heard for a long time...

Apparently, the Northern California chapter of the US Copyright Society is advertising in its spring newsletter an event on June 26th by Professor Lawrence Lessig entitled “The Growing Copyright Abolitionist Movement, and How You Can Help Stop It”.

I expect to be hearing 'copyright abolition' mentioned ever more frequently over the coming years.

Remember, geeks are perfectly rational and would never succumb to such base impulses as sexism. Any shortage of women in IT fields, or in lists like the ones Jeanne cites, must be entirely due to some other factor. They probably have some biological predisposition to seek other jobs.
