Bad Press for Trademark Lawyers


Professor Lessig shines the spotlight on lawyers for the Metropolitan Opera, for shutting a fansite named Metmaniac.com.  The issue, however, doesn’t seem as clear-cut as the professor makes it sound.  Prof. Lessig does provide a link to a cached copy of the site, which indicates that it was faciliating the swapping of tapes of broadcasts.  At some point swapping tapes with friends becomes a business in infringing works.
