Christian Dawson Of I2Coalition’s Favorite Techdirt Posts Of The Week
from the and-a-few-not-so-favorites dept
I’ve decided to use my most favorite and least favorite Techdirt posts of the week to illustrate a bit about the state of the Internet from where I sit, shining a light on a few additional intriguing posts along the way.
I loved reading Mike Masnick’s update on what Trent Reznor is doing today, and not just because Mike needed to get off the phone with me a few days ago as Trent was calling. I see this story as an update to one of Mike’s greatest hits, his 2009 Trent Reznor Case Study. So many of us who fight for intellectual property reform — who were on the front lines of SOPA and PIPA — are huge music fans and movie nerds. We respect artists and want to encourage their innovation and evolution. Mike continues to show us ways that the new economy can be great for artists of all kinds, and that we shouldn’t burn down the new economy to preserve the old.
My least favorite post this week by far was the one on PhoenixNAP, which also referenced an earlier post about ServerBeach — both criticizing those providers for overreach on content takedown procedures.
