Fair Use: In the end it’s about how much money you got


As Andy Baio discovered over the last few months, Fair Use of someone else’s “content” is all very well if you can afford to prove said “fair use”.

Matthew Ingram discusses in great detail at GigaOM the challenges which we face if we want to do a transformative version of works by other artists and creators.

I’m pretty sure topics like this will come up at tonight’s Digital Citizens event “The Age of Intellectual Property” so look forward to seeing you there and joining in the discussion.

I think we’ve yet again put on a damn fine Topic with a Panel to match. Come to the Shelbourne Hotel in Sydney and get inspired by experts like Mark PesceKeir WinesmithMatt Moore and Julian Peterson. Then stay to have a drink, a chat and help solve the problems (or otherwise) of copyright in the digital age!
