(corner of 12th street and 5th ave)
Copyright developed in the age of the printing press, and was
designed to fit with the system of centralized copying imposed by
the printing press. But the copyright system does not fit well
with computer networks, and only draconian punishments can
enforce it. The global corporations that profit from copyright
are lobbying for draconian punishments, and to increase their
copyright powers, while suppressing public access to
technology. But if we seriously hope to serve the only legitimate
purpose of copyright--to promote progress, for the benefit of the
public--then we must make changes in the other direction. This
speech will be accessible to all audiences and the public is
encouraged to attend.
