Response to Worth a Thousand Words
Christina Spiesel has written a response to my article on images and copyright, which appears in the Harvard Law Review Forum. I fully agree with Spiesel that text is rarely crystalline in meaning; it's just that lawyers are a lot more comfortable with text than with images and elevate text by comparison. But epistemic humility would help a lot with interpreting text in copyright cases as well.
