This week, I'm reading papers written by my public policy students. They could choose just about any topic and propose a change in public policy concerning that topic.

So I have been pondering their musings with respect to the Copyright Act of 1790 as well as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. And as I have thought about it--no disrespect meant to these outstanding students--there's really nothing new about these issues. At the root is the age-old problem of our public policies lagging behind our technological abilities.
