Event Details

In November, the Republican Study Committee issued, and then withdrew, a policy brief questioning the current state of our copyright laws and the rationales behind them, demonstrating how our current system actually frustrates certain conservative philosophies. In withdrawing the brief, the RSC has indicated that there were diverse views within members of the RSC on copyright, and that it was not a left-right issue. In fact, many of the aspects of today's copyright law create problems for users, artists, and industries of all political stripes, and run counter to its original constitutional purpose to promote the spread of creativity and learning. Discussions of copyright law have for too long ignored how far it has strayed from its original purpose.

Join Public Knowledge and our panel of copyright law and policy experts as we discuss these issues and begin to propose some solutions.
