Discussion Explores Free Speech and Intellectual Property

Thursday Sep 20, 2012 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM | TBD

Each semester, the Free Speech Dialogues series offers a panel discussion – featuring speakers of varying points of view – that focuses on a particular free speech controversy.

The topic this fall is Free Speech and Intellectual Property. Panelists will consider questions such as: Do copyright protections hamper free speech, or facilitate it? Is a mash-up plagiarism or creative expression? Does digitalization change the rules?

The panelists are:

  • Robert Levine, author of "Free Ride: How Digital Parasites are Destroying the Culture Business, and How the Culture Business Can Fight Back"
  • Adam Mossoff, professor of law at George Mason University
  • Neil Netanel, professor of law at UCLA
