OPENING UP AMERICAN LAWBOOKS? From Tim Wu: “I wanted to write to tell you about the launch of the world’s first completely free and public domain legal search engine: altlaw.org. Right now, legal search is dominated by a duopoloy — Westlaw and Lexis — that charge hundreds of dollars an hour for searching the nation’s laws. Altlaw.org is a pilot project to make the nation’s caselaw freely searchable by anyone. The nation’s laws are supposed to belong to the people, yet they are amazingly hard to get access to.”
