 Copyright vs. Community

 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.

     RMS Speech
     2009-03-31 from 18:00 to 20:00 
     New York, NY
