Copyright vs. Community

Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Room 2370, Murray Fraser Hall, University of Calgary, 2500 University Drive N.W. Copyright developed in the age of the printing press, and was designed to fit with the system of centralized copying imposed by the printing press. But the copyright system does not fit well with computer networks, and only draconian punishments can enforce it. The global corporations that profit from copyright are lobbying for draconian punishments, and to increase their copyright powers, while suppressing public access to technology. But if we seriously hope to serve the only legitimate purpose of copyright--to promote progress, for the benefit of the public--then we must make changes in the other direction. This speech will be the Annual Merv Leitch Lecture at the Faculty of Law. Admission is free and no registration is required.
