“When two of the most respected legal scholars (@PamelaSamuelson & @marklemley) team up to write a journal article about a court ruling,” — as Mike Masnick (@mmasnick) Tweeted — “you read it”!
So here’s that highly-recommended journal article, so you can read it.
Mr. Masnick also invited the two authors on his “TechDirt” podcast for an interview.
This article and interview are about the ramifications of the Google vs. Oracle Supreme Court case, which this blog discussed a few years ago. The implications of this landmark ruling on copyright protection in the case of shared codebases such as Java API’s are far from clear, but these two respected legal minds, from Berkeley and Stanford Law respectively, and many others, are on the case.
