Techdirt Podcast Episode 161: How One Court Just Screwed Up Software Development

from the bad-news dept

We’ve already written about the insanity of the appeals court overturning Google’s fair use victory against Oracle — but there’s plenty to dig into regarding just how bad the ruling is. This week, we’re joined by law professor Pamela Samuelson, the co-director of the Center for Law & Technology at Berkeley, to discuss what the court just did to the world of software development.

While I appreciate her expertise in the matter, I would respectfully recommend that Professor Samuelson use less ‘um’, ‘uh’, and ‘er’ in her speech. It made it sorta difficult to follow her. 🙁

(I understand that the podcast format is not exactly normal public speaking. I don’t want to assume, but perhaps she hasn’t been on many podcasts before? I can’t imagine that she has problems with public speaking, as a professor.)
