  • Professor James Boyle describes the history of a single song - protesting the government's inept response after Hurricane Katrina - and its century-old lineage in the work of Kanye West, Ray Charles, and others. Each borrowed from others, yet they borrowed in different ways, with different legal rules, in different musical cultures. At the end, we can sense how future music may be shaped and what our musical culture may give up in the process. Sponsored by the Center for the Study of the Public Domain.

  • Professor Fisk will present her work examining the rise of corporate ownership of intellectual property in the nineteenth century. This work is based on extensive research into nineteenth century law as well as the practices of several large and small firms, including Dupont, Rand-McNally, and law book publishers, that employed people who created patented and copyrighted works. It argues that the rise of corporate intellectual property necessitates development of an alternative non-property regime to acknowledge and reward innovation by employees.
