Register for “CopyRIGHT: Can Free Marketeers
Agree On Copyright Reform?” 12/13
WASHINGTON D.C. – Join TechFreedom, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, and the International Center for Law & Economics on December 13 at 3pm for “CopyRIGHT: Can Free Marketeers Agree On Copyright Reform?”
A panel of free marketeers with diverse views on copyright will explore the debate among conservatives and libertarians about the purpose of copyright, how it interacts with other rights, and a range of other questions. How is copyright like real property, and how do they differ? Will technological change force copyright to change, too? We will address these questions and discuss areas of consensus and disagreement regarding how and whether the Copyright Act should be amended to address challenges involving orphan works, fair use, piracy, intermediary liability, free speech and rogue foreign websites — among others.
TechFreedom President Berin Szoka will moderate a panel featuring:
- Jerry Brito, Senior Research Fellow, Mercatus Center at George Mason University
- Larry Downes, author of The Laws of Disruption
- Geoffrey Manne, Lecturer in Law, Lewis & Clark Law School & Executive Director, ICLE
- Adam Mossoff, Professor of Law, George Mason University School of Law
- Ryan Radia, Associate Director of Technology Studies, Competitive Enterprise Institute
You can follow the conversation on Twitter on the #RightCR hashtag. You can join the Facebook event to see who else will be coming—but please RSVP. A livestream of the event will be available here.
