DMCA not such a good idea, after all

Boing Boing is all over the story that’s all over the Internet today: “DMCA’s author says the DMCA is a failure.” (Hat tip to Instapundit.) That’s Bruce Lehman, whom I interviewed for this article (the first article on Internet law in the ABA Journal) some time around the Civil War.

Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time, but Lehman acknowledges that we’re in the “post-copyright era” now. Just to prove it, Boing Boing has links to his speech, ripped from a university server utilizing a proprietary media application, now freely available to every and sundry person via YouTube.
