Last week, @Gizmodo's @lincodega caught a killer scoop - a leake Hasbro's plan to revoke the decades-old #OpenGamingLicense, which subsidiary @Wizards promulgated as an allegedly #open sandbox for people seeking to extend #DungeonsAndDragons:… 1/ A remixed version of David Trampier's 'Eye of Moloch,' the c
The report set off a shitstorm among #DandD fans and the broader #TTRPG community - not just because it was evidence of yet more #enshittification of D&D by a faceless corporate monopolist, but because Hasbro was seemingly poised to take back a #commons. 2/
RPG players and designers had built that commons over decades, having taken #WOTC and the #OGL at their word.

#Gamers were right to be worried. 3/

Honored to be cited by @iandenisjohnson @NewYorker:…

"Andrew Erickson, a professor @NavalWarCollege & a visiting professor at @Harvard, said he’s seen no evidence that #China..."

For further background, see:…
...wants to reciprocate, citing #China’s refusal to discuss meaningful arms control. “I don’t see a basis for deep coöperation” with #Xi’s China, Erickson said. “I’m sad to say that.”…

KEY: In what areas is the #PRC under Xi willing to accommodate the US?
•To make the first move in doing so?
•Can anyone name one specific example?

Moreover, in the #PRC under #Xi, is there anything like an equivalent to this high-profile conference @Harvard, w a concluding panel on the subject of “Toward Coexistence 2.0: What Should #CHINA Do?”

1/ #CC0: What is it and what does it mean for NFT creators and holders?

My two cents, in a 39-tweet 🧵👇
2/ As a commercial #lawyer, with a strong background in #intellectualproperty, the #NFT industry has been a fascinating case study in the development and evolution of IP rights related to digital artworks and other media formats.
3/ Lots of threads have been published regarding the big question of whether NFTs in general and generative artworks, in particular, are copyrightable under US law.

If you haven't, you can start by watching my recent lecture at @EthCC, Paris, last month:

If you've never had a fight over the phrase #IntellectualProperty, count yourself lucky, you normie, you. In the land of #FreeSoftware and #FreeCulture, "IP" is fightin' words.

Not unreasonably, mind you. 1/ Benjamin Franklin's head from the US $100 bill; his mouth ha
"IP" was a deliberately ploy, undertaken by the world's largest, most aggressive corporations, who hated the existing terms of art, like "creators' monopolies." 2/
You can see why: it's hard to ask a legislature to strengthen your monopoly without provoking giggles, but "Help me defend my property"? That's an appeal to the American state religion. 3/

#Intellectualproperty--patents, copyrights, and other government-granted and -enforced monopoly privileges--gets a lot of knee-jerk support. While people invent plenty of arguments in favor, they are, unfortunately, often based in economic misunderstanding. Let's talk about #IP.
First, arguments in favor tend to rely on a cost-based theory of value. But something is not of value because it was expensive to make, but is expensive to make because it is expected to be of great value: it is the expected value that justifies taking on the (production) cost.
It's a flawed argument to ask "who would take on the great cost" to come up with new inventions if they can't get paid. Nobody has a right to get paid based on their cost or effort. You don't earn a high grade because of your effort, but put in the effort to earn a high grade.

There are lots of #intellectualproperty issues that are raised by #NFTs. Let's dive🤿in to cover a few. A 🧵👇 1/
The main #IP issues raised by #NFTs has to do with #copyright law. Copyright law has a mixed reputation in the world of software and #cryptocurrency, but it is definitely a major concern in the art world. 2/
What #copyright issues come up because of #NFTs? Ownership. Who really owns the copyright in the work? The creator? The purchaser of the NFT? A downstream purchaser? The platform? Platforms? The #smartcontract? 3/

Quick answer: #rights. Did the work on this well over a decade ago, before #GDPR was even a twinkle in Jan's eye.

Longer answer: '#ownership' (just like rights) doesn't get you shit if it ain't #enforceable / #enforced *in practice*. Hence all the current effort going into...
...#redress - e.g. Lloyd vs @Google, and the tsunami behind that.

But a new FIELD of law (e.g. #InformationalPrivity*) may be required, 'cos it turns out treating #people and their #relationships as #property is as bad as treating 'em as #subjects...

...not #sovereigns of their data.

(Not forgetting that - on the evidence of human behaviour, power imbalances, etc. - many, if not most, wouldn't relish or even know what to do with such sovereign #responsibility, much less be able to wield it outside a #rights framework.)

“The Chinese miracle is over.”

In a wide-ranging conversation, top radio talk show hosts and senior @EpochTimes staff provided context to an audience of media professionals about some of the most important headlines regarding #China.…
John @batchelorshow, a talk show host on WABC in New York, said the #TradeWar has highlighted how “China’s business model is broken.”

US #Tariffs have taught companies they can move their supply chains out of #China, without being subject to unfair trade practices.
@batchelorshow Tom @sullivanradio of #TalkMedia Network said he’s spoken with #Farmers and residents in the heartland states most affected by #China’s retaliatory #Tariffs on US #Agricultural products; they support President Trump tackling the #Chinese regime’s trade policies.
