Today is a Day for Reflection

This is not legal advice. Leave audio feedback at (512) 686-6329.

This side of the Atlantic (and Pacific), there has been a lot of reflection recently due to Memorial Day. Both of my grandfathers were in the armed forces (though neither saw combat), but that isn't what this post is about.

All of my grades from my first year of law school came in today. I wouldn't say it was bad, but I wouldn't say it was good. I need to do better. My initial thought is that that means no Lawcast during the year. I (think I) can still pretty easily do MMP because Tom handles all the production stuff on that show.

The reason I am posting is to explain why there isn't a real post today (at least not yet!). I spent some time listening to the Life of a Law Student Evidence shows, since I plan on taking Evidence in the fall. Luckily, for those of you interested in copyrights and patents (probably those of you following, I plan on taking copyright and the first (of three) patent course in the fall. I also plan on taking Professional Responsibility and Criminal Procedure, neither of which have a lot to do with the Lawcast. Part of my reflection is and will be on how much time I'll spend on ethics stuff and criminal stuff, which aren't necessarily things that will interest those looking for information on Creative Commons music law.

I haven't run anything by Nick. There has been no decision. I just wanted to get people's thoughts on what the show means to people - or, more pointedly, what people think it *could* mean. We haven't gotten up a lot of content yet (it's just the first day of June in what I've always thought of as a summer project), but I'm just wondering if regular MMP listeners really see the potential. At the end of the summer I'll probably refer back to this post, but please post initial comments.
