Copyright helps create incentives for creators to produce works that the public can enjoy. However, if copyright protections are too strong, then the result can be reduced access to scholarship and other works, which is the opposite of what copyright is meant to do.
Join Jerry Brito as he talks about how three major reforms to the Copyright Act would help foster greater public access to cultural and scholarly works and rebalance copyright. This event, hosted by the University Libraries, will be held on Tuesday, October 22, 2013, 3:15-4:15 pm at the Arlington Campus in Founders Hall, Multipurpose Room 126. Light refreshments will be served.
Jerry Brito is a senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and director of its Technology Policy Program. He also serves as an adjunct professor of law at George Mason University. His op-eds have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and elsewhere. He is the coauthor, with Susan Dudley, of Regulation: A Primer and the editor of Copyright Unbalanced: From Incentive to Excess. His research focuses on technology and Internet policy, copyright, and the regulatory process.
