Clayton Hanging it Up

This is a shame. Not that I can blame him. It’s a lot to ask someone to take on that kind of legal risk for no financial reward.

    At a minimum, there ought to be a boycott of the Las Vegas Review-Journal and everyone who advertises there.

  2. Carl from Chicago says:

    Sad day indeed.

    On the bright side, perhaps now Clayton will write more peer-reviewed articles on 2A issues … such as the fine examples cited by the US Supreme Court!

    This is a sad day, but it’s all par for the course when you’re dealing with scummy copyright parasites. Drudge has a link to a Wired article (http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2010/07/copyright-trolling-for-dollars/) that shows a picture of the Righthaven CEO who’s behind the copyright lawsuits. He looks like a real piece of work.

    Is it just me, or does that jackass look like he’s in the process of clutching his junk?

  5. Alpheus says:

    Since I’ve become anti-copyright, this is yet another reason to me why copyright should be done away with altogether…but while the law is still there, what can be done? In particular, how can we prevent copyright-law abuse? (Even if I could be convinced that copyright is a good thing, it’s a double-edged sword at best.)

    Comes as only open to those invited to read.

    Actually, no, my energy is now distracted to writing, “Does F.Civ.P. Rule 11(b)(1) Imply Pre-Filing Demand Letters?”

    It wasn’t like anyone much cared about 2A issues, anyway.

    The Supreme Court did.

    And so it comes to this. This is how the open internets will end. With a whimper. Everything will become a closed communication paradigm based upon identity verification by choice, due to litigation threats. The innertubes will be valuable only for watching whatever evolves from netflix. It’ll become nothing more than cable access. Samizdata will evolve into another communication medium.

    If I didn’t need a link for work access, I’d let it go away like my cable subscription. It was fun while it lasted.
