Blog on!

UE's blogs have hit a slight not-so-fresh streak recently, but that is due in large part to... blogs. I just completed a 30-page paper for a legal research class at Barry University School of Law on the copyright implications of blogging titled, Blog On: A Copyright Analysis of the Blogging Phenomenon. My findings were very interesting. Here's a quick clip:
As of yet, large companies, major websites, and the mainstream media have yet to make a concerted effort to go after bloggers for copyright infringement, much as the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has pursued unlawful downloaders of music files. The courts, albeit slowly, are beginning to establish the framework of the legal landscape for blogs. Will it change the blogosphere? Who knows, but the capitalistic nature of society tends to have a resourceful way of innovating new technologies, regardless of the law.
