[It's like summary judgment . . . only less, uh, judgmental.]
Since people on my flist have been posting icons lately, I thought I should jump on the boat, too, so I uploaded a batch of them. 8 for my Zaphkiel iconfiend100
, and these 4 other Angel Sanctuary icons:
I was much too amused by the idea of using only images in which the subject was wearing glasses. (The one on the right was made much earlier.) I gave up after I realized that Setsuna also wears glasses while he's in disguise -- I wanted to upload these now now now, and I was out of inspiration for Setchan. :P
In other news, which I picked up through iconfiend100
, apparently the U.S. is involved in negotiating a WIPO
treaty that would give broadcasters copyright-like rights to things they transmit, even if they have no original right in it. The U.S. is pushing to extend this concept to the internet, which seems to be creating somewhat of a flurry
. I can't help but be amused that (arguably) copyright-infringing fanfic-writers are so worried about losing their (arguably) nonexistent rights.
I haven't done more looking into this than poking around and skimming stuff on the EFF page
, but it sounds like the extension to internet still only involves webcasting and not text-based publication. I wonder if Stanford's CIS
has anything on this, though, and whether I could get involved. Now that I've joined the ELJ
and am fairly likely to join STLR
, the next step is to figure out what public interest stuff I might do, and whether I actually have time for any.
