A blog I like:
Michael Geist’s Blog. Michael is the Canada Research Chair of Internet and E-Commerce Law at the University of Ottawa.
Things I like:
- Michael writes intelligently about the need for a copyright regime that supports the creation and free movement of content.
- Michael pulls no punches. I don’t always agree with him, but I know that I can count on him to advance his arguments with courage and conviction. This doesn’t always (ever?) make him friends in the content-based industries, but he is undeterred by this.
- Michael writes from a global perspective. Yes, home base is Canada, but Michael covers major international developments in the United States, Europe and elsewhere.
Michael, you should enable TrackBacks. The conversation would be much richer if you would enable people to continue it on their own websites (which provide the context for their comments). It would also give readers a much better sense of the community that is building up around you.
