[Original Link] Ed Felten’s splendid lecture on understanding digital media and the
associated copyright issues.  You don’t need any knowledge of
technology to understand this one.
An issue Ed doesn’t touch on, which should also be exercising
the minds of the media industry, is that content of this quality is
freely available on the web, and is certainly better than anything on
offer on my TV channels tonight.  There’s always been good stuff
to read on the web.  Increasingly, there’s a lot of good stuff to watch, too.
Thanks to John for the link.
