HR 3261: Database and Collections of Information Misappropriation Act [Jan. 28th, 2004|09:06 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
In stupid law news, HR 3261, the "Database and Collections of Information Misappropriation Act", approved Jan 21st by the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, allows databases to be copyrighted, even if they're just collections of otherwise-available facts, quotes, etc.

So, uh, better not crawl LiveJournal for data.... that's now illegal.

*rolls eyes*
