Copyright is an incentive for artists to create and share ideas without fearing misrepresentation or take-over, and it also has legal implications for content creators, users, and innovators alike. What’s more, current copyright provisions, as proposed by the secretive, multi-country Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), are setting up barriers to sharing and innovating that would greatly impact how we experience art, communication, and culture.
What happens when copyright is less about incentivizing creative output and more about restrictive control? How do we make sure that creativity is not short-changed on account of profit-driven interests?
ReMix This: a Copyright Cabaret gives you the opportunity to engage in conversation with other passionate individuals to rethink copyright for the future of the arts, intellectual property and the open internet. Stay tuned for more speakers and collaborators.
