Thursdays: we show our ignorance
Questions are in regular supply here at the LII. And we have a lot of smart people in our audience, so we thought we’d see if we could get your help in answering a few of them.
So….every Thursday we’re going to throw a few out and see what you have to say about them. Sometimes they’ll be straightforward reference-desk stuff. Sometimes they’ll be quirks and oddities of life in the legal infosphere that we’re trying to explain. Sometimes neither you nor we will be able to imagine why we’re asking.
Good answers will get a tip of the hat from us the next week (and in any case will be on display in the comments).
Here are three to get you started. Answers can be submitted as comments.
1) What are your five favorite web pages for legal-research novices (how-tos, not information resources per se)?
2) Can you think of a reason why, on February 8, the New York State Thruway Authority would have had a sudden need to do research in the US Code? A lot of research?
3) Are government works in Argentina protected by copyright?
Yeah, I know, it’s not exactly the Car Talk Puzzler. But then, we’re not exactly Click ‘n’ Clack, either….
