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.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    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.)
