Count up how many questions there are over there and then count up
how many answers you'll find. What good is that going to
do you if you have a practical problem and want to know how
to resolve it?
If you want answers, come to Prof. Nefarious
and he'll give you answers. Get the Black Letter Law
from me, not a bunch of questions.
I ask you, if you wanted
questions, instead of answers about how to run your business
or how to give advice to your clients that they're willing
to pay for, why wouldn't you have tuned in a quiz show
instead of his Computer Law course? (And that goes for
the bar exam too.)
- What's all this Fletcher v. Rylands, redux stuff about.
I tried to look that up in the table of cases for U.S. Reports,
then F.2d and F.3d, then F. Supp. I found nada. Neither will you.
It's as bad as trying to rent a copy of
Night of the Lepus at Blockbuster (CB, pp. 1119, 1123), which I tried to, couldn't,
and you can't either -- do. What's going on here with these
imaginary, unfindable Fletcher and redux cases?
He's sending you on a snipe hunt.
- What's "social utility of conduct" got to do with copyright law?
Either these guys uploading content to the Web are infringers and
have to pay damages to your client - or, if you're representing
them, they're innocent lambs being led to the slaughter by Judas
goat copyright monopolists.
It's one or the other. And I've got
whichever answer you need. Never mind la de dah "social utility
of conduct" (snort).
- What's all this "inept methodology" stuff? I'll tell you
what's inept. It's not having hard and fast answers. That's
what you can get from me and pass on to people who will pay
the bill for them.
