Law on the Web as tragicomedy

Summary: Is was all but inevitable that several of Lore Sjöberg's hysterical (in a "yes, these are fiction, but so close to distilled truth you have to guffaw" kind of way) Ultimate Blog Posts would poke fun at weblog coverage of legal issues: Boing Boing: Crocheted replica of subway map cracks DRM on collection of old video games. Slashdot: AMD, SCO patent MP3 over TCP/IP, sue ATI, EA.

Is was all but inevitable that several of Lore Sjöberg's hysterical (in a "yes, these are fiction, but so close to distilled truth you have to guffaw" kind of way) Ultimate Blog Posts would poke fun at weblog coverage of legal issues:

Boing Boing: Crocheted replica of subway map cracks DRM on collection of old video games.

Slashdot: AMD, SCO patent MP3 over TCP/IP, sue ATI, EA. Microsoft probably responsible somehow.

Groklaw: Transcript of SCO deposition on previous court order concerning applicability of evidence to last year's motion to review earlier statements. Seriously, we love this stuff.

MacRumors: Apple is going to sue us for revealing that Apple is going to sue us.

    [b]Patently-O[/b] (The O is for Obvious): USPTO issues patent for using toilet by oneself. Most US adults bemoan that such was already obvious.

    [b]Recording Industry vs the People[/b]: RIAA Sues family of Luddite who has been dead for 100 years for file sharing. Family claims dead ancestor not only never owned a computer, let alone know how to operate one, but would probably have a word or two, along with a stiff flogging, to say about anyone owning one.

    [b] Lawarnce Lessig's blog[/b]: Honestly before I went to Berlin I used to have a really thought provoking blog here. Check out these links to other blogs while I'm out of the country.
