The keynote at the Electronic Frontier Foundation's 16th Annual Pioneer Awards featured two highly knowledgeable new technology blabbermouths debating the future of online video sharing sites and copyright. EFF attorney Fred von Lohmann and Dallas Maverick's owner, HDNet founder, etc, Mark Cuban sparred on safe harbor rights, YouTube/Google infringement suits and the possible futures of Internet video distribution, and, well, kitties. At least we think Cuban said "kitties."

The awards ceremony was a supplement to the 2007 Emerging Technologies Conference (ETech) which continues through Thursday at the Hyatt in San Diego. If you're heading south, come on down. Listen to the von Lohmann v. Cuban show below (we apologize for the subpar audio quality):
