Open Culture

BoundbyLawOne of my very favorite websites is Open Culture -- both an entertaining blog and an incredibly helpful collection of open source media. Today's lead blog entry, for example, takes a look a the million (yes, million) images that the British Library has put in the public domain.  On Monday it was Stephen Colbert reading Flannery O'Connor.

One of my favorite Open Culture entries has legal significance -- and is useful for legal academics as both teachers and scholars. It highlights Bound by Law?, a free comic book sponsored by Duke's Center for the Study of the Public Domain. It not only contains fabulous comic book art, but also manages both to provide information about copyright law and raise larger policy issues about the boundaries of fair use.

You can get a daily email from Open Culture, subscribe to its RSS feed, or even follow it on Twitter (@openculture). At the very least, it's a fun and enlightening study break. Check it out!
