I met Judge Albie Sachs at his stunning Constitutional Court offices (or quarters or whatever you call important peoples' office abodes) yesterday. Judge Sachs is of my all-time heroes :) It was a great moment - although I can't help thinking that I would have preferred keeping him up on my wall as one of my all-times and rather not met him in the flesh - people are so... well... "fleshy" in the flesh. Anyway, I managed to meet him because goddess, Eve Gray introduced us and I said that I really needed to talk to him about Creative Commons. We didn't talk for long. I wanted to chew the cud but Judge Sachs is a busy man. We spoke mostly about the Laugh It Off case - what an amazing ! He said that no other judgement he has written has had as much exposure as that one. But the funniest thing? He said that the SAB advocate had this to say about it: 'The downfall of capitalism.'
I agree with Albie: if only it were that easy!
