- The Patry Copyright Blog: The Establishment Press Takes on the RIAA - Still seems to be a bit of a "pre-crime" angle here but a good examination of issues that have been generally missed.
- Life With Alacrity: The Dunbar Number as a Limit to Group Sizes - Good discussion about differing group sizes.

- Fair Use Vs. Free Speech in the Internet Age: The Lane Hartwell Problem - I don't especially agree with TechCrunch on a number of things here but this comment is spot on: "In the old days, someone might have clipped Hartwell’s image from a magazine and put it into a collage, or filmed it and put it into a private video.
