Just finished my first read of the Introduction to Professor Fisher's new book "Promises to Keep: Technology, Law, and the Future of
Entertainment" [via John Palfrey] It restates some of the arguments Professor Fisher previously made at The Future of Music Policy Summit and which I discussed earlier and even earlier. It also outlines the monstrous assignment Professor Fisher has given himself.
Chapter 1: The Promise of the New Technology
Chapter 2: The Baseline: Entertainment Law and Practice in 1990
Chapter 3: What Went Awry
Chapter 4: Taking Property Rights Seriously
Chapter 5: Online Entertainment as a Regulated Industry
Chapter 6: An Alternative Compensation System
Seems like a good way to go about the analysis and I love the title. Can't wait to read the rest.
