Copyrights: Do They Have a Future in the Internet Age?

12:15 - 1:45 PM
New America Foundation
Washington, DC

Copyrights have been one of the main mechanisms for financing creative and artistic work for centuries. However, the development of digital technology and the Internet has brought about growing legal and practical challenges to copyrights. This debate answered the following question: "Are copyrights still useful or should we look to alternative mechanisms to support creative and artistic work?"

With Gerard Colby, President of National Writers Union, and Dean Baker, Co-Director of CEPR. Moderated by Jo Freeman, of UAW Local 1981/ AFL-CIO and the Washington, DC chapter of the National Writers Union.
