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."
