Open University Offering

The Open University is offering its course "Law, the Internet and Society: Technology and the Future of Ideas" free of charge on the web. Based on the work of Lawrence Lessig and other leading thinkers on the future of intellectual property, this was formerly a credit-bearing part of the "Relevant Knowledge" undergraduate program in technology.

There is an extremely simple registration process to enroll in the course, and the University promises that the only thing your registration will be used for is to monitor course usage.

Thanks to my colleague Eric Childress for pointing me in this direction. His suggestion led me to Dr. Paul Miller's post on the Common Information Environment blog.

Funny how the transmission of news reminds me of a 1940s Big Band hit these days.
