Pew Research Center: Public Attitudes Toward Computer Algorithms

The Pew Research Center has released Public Attitudes Toward Computer Algorithms.

Here's an excerpt:

At a broad level, 58% of Americans feel that computer programs will always reflect some level of human bias—although 40% think these programs can be designed in a way that is bias-free. And in various contexts, the public worries that these tools might violate privacy, fail to capture the nuance of complex situations, or simply put the people they are evaluating in an unfair situation. Public perceptions of algorithmic decision-making are also often highly contextual. The survey shows that otherwise similar technologies can be viewed with support or suspicion depending on the circumstances or on the tasks they are assigned to do.

"Defining the Relevant Market in Fair Use Determinations"

Xiyin Tang has self-archived "Defining the Relevant Market in Fair Use Determinations."

Here's an excerpt:

Whereas current copyright analysis and scholarship focuses overwhelmingly on the infringer's conduct, this Article argues, instead, that a copyright holder’s own actions should define the scope of the market for the work. In what I term a copyright owner’s "negative" uses of her own work—such as engaging in holdup strategies that make fair market value impossible to determine, failing to update Copyright Office records, refusing to mitigate damages, or using a copyright for litigation value rather than copyright value—the copyright owner herself has much to tell us about whether she is likely to suffer market harm.
