Nov. 6 Meeting: New Media & Law

The next meeting of the New Media Working Group will be on Nov 6 at 5pm in the BCNM commons. In conjunction with Takeovers and Makeovers, the BCNM-sponsored conference planned by Kris Paulsen and other new media students, we will be reading a piece by Rebecca Tushnet called "Payment in Credit: Copyright Law and Subcultural Creativity." The conference is among the first to bring together artists and art scholars, lawyers and legal scholars, and technology professionals all together to discuss the issues around appropriation and fair use.

The full paper is up on the NMWG reading list here:
