Intellectual Property
This entry is all information (ie. links), and no thoughts.

The third installment (here are the first and second) in Larry Solum's series on IP has been posted. This is a really excellent post, concentrating on the question of whether the RIAA has any chance of effectively eliminating file sharing (by which he means file sharing of proprietary works, irritatingly Larry doesn't acknowledge the existence of file-sharing of non-proprietary works).

Larry links to the Intellectual Property Page, and excellent resource that I don't think I ever encountered before. Also Randy Barnett at the Volokh Conspiracy provides brief commentary on Larry's post, where he interestingly comments that he will be developing an anti-IP argument in a seminar series he will be giving at Boston University.

Text and hrefs
I'm interested in what opinions exist on how to mix text and hrefs in HTML. As far as possible I try to make the text in an HTML document between anchor tags be informative as to what the href is, and to be a determiner phrase (eg. "two arguments against rhubarb", or "the definitive reference to custard"). Is there anything like a style-guide to these sorts of issues?
