Lessig has spent his career battling overly restrictive copyright regulation in front of the U.S. Supreme Court and in the U.S. Congress. He’ll address his role in the copyright wars and his new role as head of Harvard’s Safra Center for Ethics. There, he is focusing on questions of governance, corruption and the growing use of private money in public institutions.
Thanks to Tech Trends, the Dept. of Journalism and Public Relations, the School of Media and Communication, the College of Technology, the Dept. of American Cultural Studies, BGeXperience, the Dept. of Telecommunications and the Dept. of English for supporting his visit.
His lecture, titled “From Copyright to Corruption and Back Again,” will be at 7 p.m. in the BTSU theatre. All are welcome.
