Illegal Art In SF, July 2 - 25, 2003" />
Valentina Pasquali has written a special report for the bIPlog on the Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act's (pdf) harmonization of US copyright terms with the EU Copyright Directive terms, as well as the arguments made in the case and the opinions (pdf) regarding harmonization in the Eldred case.
Valentina was an undergraduate student this year at UC Berkeley, visiting just for the one year from university in Bologna. She had a blast in the Berkeley and told me she regreted having to leave when we had lunch two weeks ago. She also spent a year in Michigan as an exchange high school student, so she comes to the bIPlog with a good command of English. But I'm really impressed with her ability to write about Eldred and copyright issues considering that Italian is really her first language. It was fun having her contribute to the bIPlog and I wish her well, and hope she keeps contributing!
