Copyright vs. Community
by Matt Lee published Feb 11, 2009 last modified Feb 17, 2009 08:53 AM — filed under:
New York, NY. Moot Court Room (first floor auditorium), Cardozo School of Law, 55 5th Ave, (corner of 12th street and 5th ave), Yeshiva University. 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 accessible to all audiences and the public is encouraged to attend.

Event Copyright vs. Community: supporting artists while respecting freedom and society
by Matt Lee published Jan 13, 2009 last modified Mar 17, 2009 01:57 PM — filed under:
Boston, MA. C. Walsh Theatre, 55 Temple St., Suffolk University. Copyright does great harm when applied to today¹s computer networks which facilitate online collaboration and peer-to-peer sharing. Developed for the age of the printing press and currently enforceable only through draconian punishments, the system infringes freedoms which have become essential to network users. Dr. Richard Stallman, MacArthur Fellow and president of the Free Software Foundation, offers an alternative way for copyright to provide its intended benefits to the public without negating the freedom we need. This talk will be accessible to all audiences and the public is encouraged to attend. The location is very close to Park St station on the MBTA Red Line. 1. Head northeast on Tremont St toward Park St 2. Turn left at Park St 3. Turn right at Beacon St 4. Turn left at Bowdoin St 5. Slight left at Derne St 6. Turn left to stay on Derne St 7. Turn right at Temple St Destination will be on the left.
