Free Culture Part V

July 29, 2004
Solo

Wrapping it up with a five-hour finale to the thoughts and ideas of Lawrence Lessig. If this does not succeeded in getting copyright revised to accommodate the cultural realities that digital technology has changed, then Lawrence Lessig is right and it is too late to preserve free access to our own culture on the Internet. Welcome to professional and fully controlled media.

We continue through the entire month of July with this subject which suggests profound changes in human behavior, values, and culture due to new technology. The thoughts and ideas of Lawrence Lessig remain the focus and feature throughout. This reasoned plea to revise copyright law to preserve creativity now that we have the Internet continues.

Free Culture Part I

June 24, 2004
Solo

This is partly comprised of volunteers reading chapters from Lawrence Lessigs book, Free Culture, on the Internet. This is a book that became audio on the Internet and which now becomes a radio mix and, so far, no one has objected to this multiplicity of unauthorized reuses. This show is all about the very idea of intellectual property and how that idea is changing in the novel light of new technology. With contrasting and supporting material from many media sources, we look at what belongs to whom in this transforming cultural context.
