Wireside Chat With Lawrence Lessig.

"Lawrence Lessig, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawrence_Lessig) the 
foundational voice of the free culture movement, will deliver a talk on 
fair use, politics, and online video from Harvard Law School in 
Cambridge, Massachusetts. You'll be able to tune in to a live webcast. 
The lecture by Lawrence Lessig will last 45 minutes, and will be 
followed by a 30 minute interactive Q & A session. The event will be 
moderated by Elizabeth Stark of the Open Video Alliance. Questions can 
be submitted using the hashtag #wireside. This is a talk about copyright 
in a digital age, and the role (and importance) of a doctrine like 'fair 
use.' Fair use allows limited use of copyrighted material without 
requiring permission from the rights holders, and is essential for 
commentary, criticism, news reporting, remix, research, teaching and 
scholarship with video. As a medium, online video will be most powerful 
when it is fluid, like a conversation. Like the rest of the internet, 
online video must be designed to encourage participation, not just 
passive consumption. Tune in here on February 25th, 6:00pm US Eastern 
time (see more time zones), or check out our screening events in cities 
across the world."
