Following up my research project on copyright and the Internet, I stumbled across this quote from Mark Twain:

"Only one thing is impossible for God. To find any sense in any copyright law on the planet"

After a day spent reading through texts on the DCMA (Digital Milennium Copyright Act) and it's European equivalent, the less sexy EU Directive 2001/29/EC, which both spell the end of any attempt at common sense, I've found a good summary by Paul Pedley, called 'Copyright and the internet: myth and reality', which explains some of the more arcane points. However, the more research I do, such as reading Larry Lessig's "The Future of Ideas", the more depressed I become!
