Grimmelmann on the GBS2 Fairness Hearing
Following up on Mark Giangrande's GBS2 fairness hearings post that cites to LJ's coverage (which notes, "keep watch on The Laboratorium, the blog of settlement observer and New York Law School professor James Grimmelmann, for upcoming commentary,"),you can check out James Grimmelmann's commentary and analysis on The Laboratorium here and here. Highly recommended.
As posted in Beyond GBS2 to a New Rule of Copyright Law, Grimmelmann's thinking has gone from “approve the settlement.” to explaining “how to fix GBS," to concluding that the way the settlement uses a class action to attempt to resolve the issues is "not salvageable."
You can also read the transcript of the GBS2 fairness hearing to form your own opinion. [JH]
