For the moment, videos of U2’s concert for Obama are available via YouTube, but since all of these violate copyrights I wonder how long they will remain accessible there. (For a recent article on the subject, see “Copyright in the Age of YouTube” from the ABA Journal.)

Speaking of Sinatra’s record, the FBI’s dossier on him is available here.
