More stories, but, please, … don’t jump to conclusions. Only the parties to this argle-bargle (here and here) have all the facts right now. It could be there is more misunderstanding than grandstanding. We look forward to hearing more.

Rob Hyndman, linking to Slaw:

“… by Simon Fodden on April 16th, 2008
Boing Boing gives us Carl Malmud’s report that U.S. free access sites Justia and Public.Resources.Org have received take-down letters from the Oregon Legislative Counsel in connection with their publishing of Oregon’s laws. Apparently West Publishing, which has also reproduced Oregon’s laws without a licence from the state, will not receive a similar demand.
I know that
Canada and Ontario claim Crown copyright in our laws but explicitly permit copying if the material is reproduced accurately and that copyright is acknowledged.” (From Slaw.)
