  2. What Would an Evidence-Based Copyright Law Look Like?

    Copyright laws are declared to be the underpinnings of creativity, innovation, the knowledge economy, and everything short of curing the sick and feeding the poor. Can copyright laws do all these wonderful things, or are they, in Ian Hargreaves’ words, the result of lobbynomics?

    William Patry is senior copyright counsel at Google Inc. He has written far too much about copyright law, including his new book How to Fix Copyright Law and so now spends his time playing bass clarinet.

  3. Copyright is Brain Damage | Nina Paley | TEDxMaastricht

    Ideas aren’t good or bad because of what licenses people slap on them. Just relate to the ideas themselves. [Filmed at TEDxMaastricht]

    Nina Paley made her first animation when she was 13 and has been making animated movies and cartoons ever since. This is where her true passion shines through and this is where she has been able to make her mark as an outspoken and impactful voice for intellectual freedom! Acclaimed for her animated feature film Sita Sings the Blues, which she says “…like all culture belongs to you [the audience] already“. She is an advocate of ‘copyleft’, the opposite –obviously- of copyright.

    Copyleft is a form of licensing and can be used to maintain copyright conditions. But Nina even goes a step further, a step beyond copyleft, by stating that licensing, even copyleft licensing, is still part of the "permission culture" she advocates resisting.

    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

  4. Jeder dritte Lehrer fühlt sich ausgebrannt – Besuch in einer Burn-out-Klinik DER SPIEGEL 2017/38

    In ei­nem Se­mi­nar­raum der psy­cho­so­ma­ti­schen Kli­nik in Bad Bramstedt sit­zen elf Frau­en und zwei Män­ner in ei­nem Stuhl­kreis, vorn ein Tisch mit Kaf­fee und Kek­sen, eine Pinn­wand, ein Flip­chart, ein Kar­ton mit bun­ten Kar­ten und Filz­stif­ten. Alle, die hier sit­zen, sind Leh­rer. Drau­ßen ist Som­mer, der Schul­be­ginn kommt mit je­dem Tag nä­her. Die Run­de trifft sich zu ih­rer letz­ten Sit­zung, der Kurs, den sie dann be­en­det ha­ben wird, heißt „Agil“, eine Ab­kür­zung für „Ar­beit und Ge­sund­heit im Leh­rer­be­ruf“. Da­hin­ter steckt eine The­ra­pie, ent­wi­ckelt für Leh­rer, die ent­we­der schon un­ter Burn-out lei­den oder die, wie in die­sem Fall, be­fürch­ten, ei­nen Burn-out zu be­kom­men.

    Somewhere at the edge of our heliosphere, billions of miles from Earth, the Voyager 1 spacecraft carries the sounds of a few musicians from our planet into the interstellar void. It also carries a legacy of extraterrestrial copyright law. Bob talks with The New Yorker’s music critic Alex Ross about the nature of intergalactic intellectual property.
