Public Knowledge is sponsoring what looks like an amazing event, to be held on January 12th next year.
“World’s Fair Use Day will shine a spotlight on how crucial fair use is to our culture, our democracy and our economy,” Sohn said. “It is important for people to realize that it is not always illegal to use copyrighted materials without permission.”
They are even planning a double feature, the evening before, of “RiP: A Remix Manifesto” and “Copyright Criminals”.
You can find the impressive list of speakers and all the particulars on the web site Public Knowledge has set up for the event.
