Towards an Open Source Legal Operating System

Here’s an article by Katie Fortney, who was an intern at our library.

Abstract:     
An informed democratic society needs open access to the law, but states’ attempts to protect copyright interests in their laws are a major roadblock. This article urges broader access, analyzes the implications and legal arguments for and against copyright in the law, and considers strategies for access advocacy.
