Happy Fair Use Day! I saw this both on Boing Boing and Ars Technica, the latter with some good information on the history of this third annual commemoration of our rights as consumers and users. Act if you can, but at least learn. Go to the Fair Use Network to educate yourself on your rights.
Carey sent in some more feedback, with some clarification on circuit and district courts based on my questions over the recent 6th and 9th circuit court rulings around privacy of email contents and addresses, respectively.
