Judge Patel on Copyright

Judge Marilyn Hall Patel, who is the American judge who shut down the original Napster, and who is very highly respected has just given an important talk at Fordham on November 10, 2008 in the prestigious Brace Lecture series.

She proposes a very utopian grand compulsory licensing scheme that would entail a "new public/private organization with authority over the licensing and enforcement of copyright."

Here's a report in Wired.
