"Copyright vs. Community" and "Don't Even Think "Intellectual Property""

(Nagoya, Japan, from Oct 26, 2007 12:00 AM to Oct 26, 2007 12:00 AM)

Location: Nagoya University, 8F Auditorium, Graduate School of International Development Bldg., Furo-cho, Chikusa-ku, Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. 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. Attendance is free, but feel free to e-mail info@feedforth.org if you plan to attend (with your name and affiliation, if possible) as this will help the organizers plan.
