Archived webinar on libertarians and copyright now available

Cup of coffee with beans.

Check out the latest CopyTalk webinar.

An archived copy of the CopyTalk webinar “what do Libertarians think about copyright law?” is now available. Originally webcasted on April 7, 2016 by the Office for Information Technology Policy’s Copyright Education Subcommittee, presenters were Zach Graves, director of digital strategy and a senior fellow working at the intersection of policy and technology at R Street and Dr. Wayne Brough, chief economist and vice president for research at FreedomWorks. They described how thinkers from across the libertarian spectrum view copyright law. Is copyright an example of big government? Does the law focus too much on content companies and their interests?  Is it in the interests of freedom and individual choice? FreedomWorks and R Street (along with ALA) are founding members of Re:Create, a new DC copyright coalition that  supports balanced copyright, creativity, understandable copyright law, and freedom to tinker and innovate!

Plan ahead! One hour CopyTalk webinars occur on the first Thursday of every month at 11am Pacific/2 pm Eastern Time.  It’s free! On May 5, university copyright education programs will be on tap!
