Event C source code header Copyright vs. Community in the Age of Computer Networks
by Matt Lee published Feb 02, 2007 last modified Feb 12, 2007 10:23 AM — filed under:
This speech will be accessible to all and the public is encouraged to attend. 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. Location: University of California, Davis, 1065 Kemper Hall, 1 Shields Avenue, Davis CA 95616.

Economic research shows that they even retard progress. The speech will be in Spanish. It will be accessible to all audiences and the public is encouraged to attend.
