Did Obama break the law when he gave the Queen an iPod (Berman Post: Obama Give Queen Elizabeth ... an iPod)? The potential violation is not from the iPod itself but the songs on it. The short answer is that we can not know and even if he did both he and the Queen have immunity. The point of asking the question is to take a hard look at the current rather confusing copy right laws in the digital age.
