EVENT DETAIL

Is Intellectual Property Dead? The Revolt of Students for New Directions
Tuesday, February 26, 2008 6:30 – 8:30 pm

Event has expired. Registration for this event is no longer available.
Students for Free Culture has chapters in at least 35 universities across the country. Many of the groups are branching out beyond access to music copyright. The issues are far more than piracy. Can the students lead us, in terms of public policy, to a new copyright direction in which copyright law will not make some users criminal?
