Do Copyright Laws Stifle Creativity? - Lawrence Lessig

Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2009/02/26/Remix_Steven_Johnson_Lawrence_Lessig_and_Shepard_Fairey

Using examples from YouTube, Stanford law professor and copyright activist Lawrence Lessig discusses the influence of "remixes" and "mashups" of existing art on culture as a whole, and ponders the fate of participatory media in the face of out-of-date copyright laws.


What is the future for art and ideas in an age when practically anything can be copied, pasted, downloaded, sampled, and re-imagined?

LIVE from the NYPL and WIRED Magazine kick off the Spring 2009 season with a spirited discussion of the emerging remix culture.

Our guides through this new world--who will take us from Jefferson's Bible to Andre the Giant to Wikipedia--will be Lawrence Lessig, author of Remix, founder of Creative Commons, and one of the leading legal scholars on intellectual property issues in the Internet age; acclaimed street artist Shepard Fairey, whose iconic Obama "HOPE" poster was recently acquired by the National Portrait Gallery; and cultural historian Steven Johnson, whose new book, The Invention of Air, argues that remix culture has deep roots in the Enlightenment and among the American founding fathers. - New York Public Library

Lawrence Lessig is a professor of law at Stanford Law School and founder of the school's Center for Internet and Society. He teaches and writes in the areas of constitutional law, contracts, and the law of cyberspace. Prior to joining the Stanford faculty, he was Berkman Professor of Law at Harvard Law School and a professor at the University of Chicago. He clerked for Judge Richard Posner on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and for Justice Antonin Scalia on the United States Supreme Court. For much of his career, he has focused on law and technology, especially as it affects copyright. Recognized for arguing against interpretations of copyright that could stifle innovation and discourse online, he is CEO of the Creative Commons project, and he has been a columnist for Wired, Red Herring, and The Industry Standard.

TEDxNYED - Henry Jenkins - 03/06/10

Henry Jenkins joins USC from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he was Peter de Florez Professor in the Humanities. He directed MITs Comparative Media Studies graduate degree program from 1993-2009, setting an innovative research agenda during a time of fundamental change in communication, journalism and entertainment. As one of the first media scholars to chart the changing role of the audience in an environment of increasingly pervasive digital content, Jenkins has been at the forefront of understanding the effects of participatory media on society, politics and culture. His research gives key insights to the success of social-networking Web sites, networked computer games, online fan communities and other advocacy organizations, and emerging news media outlets.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

SPECIAL LXD Message to our International Audience!

Thank you for your patience. We have been working hard to change the system and make the LXD distribution model sustainable both for the art and for the web business.

Most of the world will be getting access to LXD episodes by the end of September so hang tight. We're almost there. Unfortunately we have to go country by country and that takes time. But it's our highest priority and we have been working tirelessly to get it done.

UK, Germany, Spain, Phillipines, Australia, Canada...etc. But we want to know where you all are from so we can target more if we need to. So respond to our FACEBOOK.COM/THELXD messages and tell us where we need to be. We'll create an account for your country and you guys can demand it so we know where to put our priorities as we get the deals together.

Again thank you for your patience. Our number one goal is to create a new system to get it out to the WHOLE WORLD right when we release it. Many think it's not possible for a long time, but we intend to change that idea.

-Jon M. Chu
