Weinberger Blogs "Signal or Noise 2"
Marvelous detailed notes from Berkman Fellow David Weinberger on a discussion about the part "remixing" plays in creativity:
The second Signal to Noise conference begins to the sound of "Sexy Jesus" beating through the Ames Courtroom in Austin Hall at Harvard Law. ...Charlie Nesson begins by saying the aim of law is to create a culture in which we can have freedom and creativity in peace. He talks about copyright's original balance being continuously upset by Congress's one-side expansion of the length of copyright's protection. He points to the expansion of copyright across space as well, beginning with Reagan linking copyright to trade expansion.
More excellent running notes here
-- and no doubt much more to come. And keep an eye on John Palfrey's weblog
, where he's helpfully tracking coverage.
