An interesting article in the NY Times wondering whether or not there should be special courts that focus on technology cases. This is in response to the fact that many of today's judges don't have nearly enough background to understand exactly what it is they're deciding about. I'm a little torn on this idea. I can see the benefits - especially in light of a number of stupid court decisions lately. Then again, I'm not sure technology is so special. It should be something that can be explained to the judge so that they can understand it.
