CopyrightX Livestream: Orphan Works and Digital Libraries


Wednesday, April 24, 2013, 7:00pm to 8:00pm

CopyrightX (HLS1x) is hosting a livestream on April 24 at 7 p.m. open to all: "Orphan Works and Digital Libraries" with Robert Darnton, John Palfrey, Brewster Kahle.

Join us on April 24 and throughout the Spring 2013 semester for a series of webcasted special events for Professor Terry Fisher's copyright courses, offered at Harvard Law School and on the edX online learning platform. The webcasts feature live discussions between Professor Fisher, guest experts, Harvard Law School students, and edX students, who participate remotely. CopyrightX, an experimental course offered on edX, explores in depth the law, theory, and practice of copyright.

Each of the events features a guest expert and examines a difficult issue growing out of, or adjacent to, copyright law. In the courses overall, and in the special events in particular, considerable attention is devoted to the relationship between copyright law and creative expression in a variety of fields: literature; music; film; photography; graphic art; software; comedy; fashion; and architecture.
