Congressman Boucher hits the blogging bigtime

From this Denise Howell post, I connected to this Lawrence Lessig post, which says that his guest-bloggers for August will include Judge Richard Posner of the Seventh Circuit and our own Congressman Rick Boucher of the Ninth District of Virginia. Congressman Boucher makes headlines in the IP world these days for trying to pull back the tentacles of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act.

I'm not sure how many people here in the Fightin' Ninth read Lawrence Lessig (or Bag and Baggage), but I do, sometimes - enough to know he was really bummed about losing that Supreme Court case on the constitutional validity of copyright extension. (Actually, I read Bag and Baggage every day.)
