Play-Jurisms: A Weekend of Creativity! Copyright! Ethics! Appropriation!

  • Location:
    Democracy Center, 54 Mt. Auburn St., Cambridge, Massachusetts, 02138, US

Curious about how copyright and alternatives impact your creative work? Wondering how other creatives are using or misusing copyright? Want to know how to protect your work from being stolen– or how much of other people's works you can include in your own?
       Play-Jurisms is a 2-day series geared towards creatives. Over the
weekend of May 21 and 22, 2011, we'll have a number of events that address these important, and often confusing issues.
Speakers include Intellectual Properties lawyers; copyright and copyright-reform activists; and artists and musicians who question the way things stand right now. We’ll also screen a documentary about  Negativland called “Sonic Outlaws”; see a brand-new multimedia performance by Gang Clan Mafia; and hear the sounds of Factory Seconds, for whom all songs are folk songs.
All events are free. See our website for full listings.
