Tales from the Public Domain is a comic book (download - or purchase at Amazon) released under a Creative Commons license that looks at copyright law. Some of the frightening effects of our overly-litigious society and how they affect documentary filmmakers can also be seen at Duke Law School's Center for the Study of the Public Domain's Moving Image contest.

$200 billion broadband scandal; exploiting foreign workers

  • $200 billion broadband scandal. Evidently, telecom companies promised that they'd wire America in exchange for some financial incentives from the US government. They didn't deliver, but they profited greatly. (via digg)

  • Companies are posting ads looking for "H-1B visa holders only." See, it's easier to exploit imported employees. This is why we need to increase our quotas for H-1B visas. Sigh.
