Park Slope.

I wrote the "New Economy" column in the business section of today's NYT: Google Runs Into Copyright Dispute. It's about Google's creative problem solving in its recent run-in with the Church of Scientology. You can see the problem solving at work in the notice at the bottom of this page. (Update: Related discussion at Slashdot.)

The story talks a lot about the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which I last wrote about a year ago in a story about David Touretzky's nutty DeCSS gallery. (Update: I almost forgot that Dr. Touretzky has had his own interesting encounters with Scientology. And in the interest of balanced linking, here's a frequently asked question about Scientology: What has been the Church’s role in protecting free speech and intellectual property rights on the Internet?)
