What’s the word for hibernating in summer? And winter? And then summer again?
That’s what the blog has been doing while I have been distracted. So I have been seeing issues and debates flying by and left them unremarked on (by me) partly because it’s busy work, this Copyright Hub thing, and partly because I have been in the rather serene position of thinking about copyright not from the point of view of a particular person or industry but – as far as I can – from the point of view of everyone.
In the process some ideas have been emerging and coming to the fore which I have become increasingly interested in writing down and articulating properly. It seems that the debate about copyright is constantly being re-opened all over the world and it always seems to start with something which claims to be first principles. The debate which ensues is often familiar and often, so my mind, misses the point.
So I am going to try to write some things down, I am going to try to do so in book form (yes, sort of the same book I said I was going to write when I left News Corp) and so I thought I might resurrect this blog so I can practice and try some thoughts out on my pitiful but loyal audience.
So when I have a thought, I’ll share it here. In the meantime there’s always this.
