Week 7: Intellectual Property and Fair Use

3ae45761This week our student panel will be discussing intellectual property and fair use as it pertains to the internet. Summarized readings provided by this week’s panelists can be found here: http://theinternetcourse.net/category/ip-fair-use/

In preparation for the dicussions we would like the entire class to watch [[Lawrence Lessig]]’s TED talk “Laws that choke creativity.” The talk should make a nice bridge from last week’s discussion of consumption and creativity on the web. Once you;ve watched the video we’d like you to so a blog a reflection on the ideas he discusses. Tag the blog post “ipfairuse” (no quotes).

Also, it might also be useful to take a look at the actual copyright rules:

Additionally, the video Everything Is a Remix is both highly entertaining and instructive about the implications of copyright on creativity.

And here is the google document containing the panelists specific sub-topics, talking points, resources, links, and discussions questions.

See you all on Tuesday!
