Book Talk: Digital Copyright

Join Internet Archive’s founder BREWSTER KAHLE for a virtual book talk with author & professor of law JESSICA LITMAN.

In Digital Copyright (read now), law professor Jessica Litman questions whether copyright laws crafted by lawyers and their lobbyists really make sense for the vast majority of us. Should every interaction between ordinary consumers and copyright-protected works be restricted by law? Is it practical to enforce such laws, or expect consumers to obey them? What are the effects of such laws on the exchange of information in a free society?

    With the investion of AI which pull out information from the net and paraphrase, I hope the digital copyright would also look at the downside of AI as it directly speaks about copyright in digital space?.

    As long as capitalism is the ideological basis and the profit motive is the driving force, lawsuits against the public use of anything will always come. There is no generosity in capitalism and no capitalism in generosity. Be generous.

    I wish to support archive org, because it is for me especially it is very important for my life.
    I’m allergic in a way,
    I have to live alone
    or with people (my beloved husband),
    who shares my live under the conditions I’m able to exist.
    The service of a very good library is extremely important, thank you for archive org.
