Recently, the attached email was posted on the CyberLaw mailing  
list.  Several online courses on copyright law are being made  
available by a site copyrightlaws.com.

It looks like the author of these online courses, Lesley Ellen  
Harris, is a copyright lawyer in Canada that is the founder of  

Performing a few Google searches for keywords important to us (e.g.,  
GPL, creative commons, etc.) combined with their site sees no hits.

It seems to me if a company exists only to educate C?Os about  
copyright issues they should provided a balanced view of the topic,  
unless they are just a shill, of course.
