  1. Against Intellectual Property

    Copyrights and patents have come to be called “intellectual property,” a phrase which suggests that they are much akin to ordinary property. They are not: they are a government grant of monopoly power. The argument in favour of intellectual property must then be that these monopolies provide important offsetting incentives for innovation and creation.

    However, all the available evidence suggests that patents and copyrights are a failure, and inhibit innovation and creativity at least as much they encourage it.

    In this lively and entertaining lecture, Dr. David Levine documents the history of intellectual property, arguing that the best strategy for stimulating creativity in 21st century society is to eliminate copyrights and patents entirely.

  3. Remix: Steven Johnson, Lawrence Lessig and Shepard Fairey

    What is the future for art and ideas in an age when practically anything can be copied, pasted, downloaded, sampled, and re-imagined?

    LIVE from the NYPL and WIRED Magazine kick off the Spring 2009 season with a spirited discussion of the emerging remix culture.

    Our guides through this new world—who will take us from Jefferson's Bible to Andre the Giant to Wikipedia—will be Lawrence Lessig, author of Remix, founder of Creative Commons, and one of the leading legal scholars on intellectual property issues in the Internet age; acclaimed street artist Shepard Fairey, whose iconic Obama "HOPE" poster was recently acquired by the National Portrait Gallery; and cultural historian Steven Johnson, whose new book, The Invention of Air, argues that remix culture has deep roots in the Enlightenment and among the American founding fathers.

  4. Tech Weekly podcast: Tech City Talk - Intellectual Property and Copyright

    This week's Tech City talk is about intellectual property and copyright in a digital age. How do we balance between the competing needs of the creative industry: to protect themselves, but stay open enough to ensure continued innovation?

    On the panel to discuss rights and ownership is Ed Vaizey MP (minister for culture, communications and creative industries), Professor Ian Hargreaves (chair of digital economy at the Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies), Feargal Sharkey (chief executive of UK Music), Jonathan Haskel (professor of economics at Imperial College Business School) and Jeff Lynn (chairman of Coadec).
