According to Lawrence Lessig, the free culture movement is concerned about big media protecting the interests of big media over creators. Free culture supports and protects creators and innovators and seeks the transformation of culture through the free exchange of ideas.
Join us for a lively discussion of artistic freedom, the public domain, copyright, control of the media, open access, open source, free software, academic journals, institutional repositories, and consumer rights.
