Pam Samuelson Reflections
Praised Jaszi’s leadership in fighting White Paper, Digital Future Coalition; the DMCA could have been much worse. Reached out to people who think about copyright ownership who aren’t lawyers.

Joseph Liu and Alfred Yen, In Praise of a Classic
Copyright textbook, now in 10th edition. Reflections on the textbook based on creation of own textbook. Jaszi’s textbook: narrative thread strong, but over 1000 pages. That could make it difficult for students to swallow, or, if you assigned only chunks, lost narrative thread. Their own book: 750 pages—can go through whole thing; fewer case notes.
DMCA exemption: making the case with the facts with extensive factfinding for filmmakers. Lots of different jobs for students in developing facts, discussing with experts, preparing testimony.
