The Register has an interesting story today (“Poker Money and the Ethics Professor“) about the rather bizarre connections between the Berkman Center of Harvard Law School, Lawrence Lessig (call sign “Ace”) and Charles “The Gambler” Nesson one the one hand and confessed felon Anurag Dikshit and Partygaming.com.
There is a fairly interesting, if not serious question, as to whether these people were paying illgotten gains to iCommons, Creative Commons and who knows who/what else?
Given the tax-exempt status of the Berkman Center, Creative Commons, GPSTS and other groups connected to the Berkman Center professors, it seems that the organization needs to publicly vet their sources of revenue and lobbying activities particularly given their very tight connections to organized gambling.
Will they? Very doubtful.
