Okay, now I'm convinced that Jay is insane.
Ruben, didn't you say that (as you predicted) Brett turned over
ownership of NYFairUse to NYLXS? If so, that means they can't host the
site anymore. I hope the Board has this in writing. Even operating
under a different name, NYFairUse should not be discarded.
I guess Jay is playing fast and loose with the names. "New Yorkers for
Fair Use" is technically different, if an obvious violation of the
spirit of the agreement. For what it's worth, the accomplishments he
trumpets seem pretty insubstantial -- 6000 e-mail messages in support of
his cause? What does that accomplish?
Here's hoping that Michael is up to the challenge of being hard-nosed in
the face of babbling clowns.
