Subject: [free-culture] Professor James Boyle with FC @ NYU
I'm writing to invite you to a very special meeting of Free
Culture @ NYU. On Wednesday, September 20th at 7pm we'll be
co-sponsoring an event with The Association for Computing
Machinery (ACM) to bring professor James Boyle from Duke Law
school to NYU. We'll be meeting at Warren Weaver Hall (also
known as the Courant Institute) in room 513. The topic will be
the DMCA, also know as the "copyright" law everyone loves to
hate. Some people consider it unconstitutional (as it bans
certain types of speech, eg explaining how to subvert DRM),
others consider merely a bad law that we have to work around.
We'll be discussing it, its impact, and whether or not we're
paying too much attention to it. Check out the Wikipedia entry on
the DMCA here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DMCA if you'd like
to learn more about the law.
A bit of background on Professor Boyle: He is a board member of
Creative Commons, columnist for the Financial Times online and
winner of the 2003 World Technology Award for Law for his work on
"cultural environmentalism." His most recent work is a comic
book about fair use.
Space is limited, so please RSVP to freecultureNYU@gmail.com and
have "RSVP" somewhere in the e-mail so our filters can pick it
Check out the poster here :
Feel free to forward this e-mail to whomever you'd think would be
interested in this event.
