All Streisand Effects Considered

from the drive-time-radio dept

The Streisand Effect is getting a bit more coverage these days. After the Associated Press mentioned it the other day, I got to sit down and talk with Robert Siegel for today's "All Things Considered" where we discussed The Streisand Effect starting with the Wikileaks case and moving on to some other cases where the Effect clearly made an appearance. If this keeps up, maybe we can look forward to a day when lawyers think twice about trying to force perfectly legitimate content offline.

    Wishful thinking. Unless the laws are changed, they're gonna do whatever is legal. Even then you have to wonder about some.

    It all come back to Congress (for the US). As long as only millionaires can effectively run, not much is going to change.
