I just wanted to let people know that James Boyle, founder of Creative Commons, will be speaking at UNC's Gerrard Hall on Friday, October 9th at 5pm. The details are here, if you are interested.
Boyle's an important thinker when it comes to intellectual property. This talk will focus on the crappy crappy copyright decisions of the late 20th century, when the U.S. Congress decided to violate the copyright clause of the Constitution, and the Supreme Court decided the intellectual future of our nation wasn't important.
I'm a little biased on this one.
Anyhow, this is important stuff in the Information Age. I have a prior engagement and won't be able to attend. You, on the other hand, should really be there.
