Time Event
Link Harvest: TPP Text
Wikileaks gives us the text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Treaty going into the current negotiating round in Slat Lake City. Spoiler Alert! It sucks.

Intellectual Property and Jewish Ethics
I will speaking at this event tomorrow night at the Jewish Museum of Military History. I call my presentation: "My idea is mine and your idea is yours -- Why some of us say U.S. intellectual property policy is the Way of Sodom."

Event announcement:
"The tragic suicide of Internet activist Aaron Swartz in the fall of 2012 drew public attention to the ethical problems that arise from the protection—or overprotection--of intellectual property.  Does information really want to be free, as the saying goes?  

And what can we learn from Jewish tradition--from the Talmud to more modern interpretations -- about creating a fair balance between the intellectual property rights of writers and other artists and access to copyrighted media in the United States?"
