O'Reilly: Set Up Your Own .Mac
So, still fuming about the .Mac annual fee? The question of whether .Mac is worth $100 is a personal matter, but one of the greatest ironies of this situation is that Mac OS X is packed full of features that make many aspects of .Mac unnecessary.

How about running your own unlimited version of iDisk or hosting your own Web site? And what if you can do it easily for less than a one-time fee of $50? If you aren't too keen on ponying up $100 per year for .Mac, you should at least send Apple a "Thank You" iCard for giving us Mac OS X.

Whereas Lessig's recent work engages with questions of culture and creativity in society, this paper looks at the role of culture and creativity in the law. The paper evaluates the Napster, DeCSS, Felten and Sklyarov litigation in terms of the new social, legal, economic and cultural relations being produced.

This involves a deep discussion of law's economic relations, and the implications of this for litigation strategy. The paper concludes with a critique of recent attempts to define copyright law in terms of first amendment rights and communicative freedom.
