Idle thoughts of a relatively libertarian Republican in Cambridge, MA, and whomever he invites. Mostly political.

You can download a 13-page PDF here on the "Law/Norm Gap" in copyright law (I don't remember whether I got this from Volokh or from Instapundit). The story illustrating the gap starts around page 7. Kind of interesting, and I agree that what most people consider normal activity and what the law allows need to converge, with most of that convergence derived from changes to the law.
