If you make art for a living or are interested in the rapidly evolving rights for people who create stuff–and especially if you live in/around NYC–then point yourself at this FREE day-long symposium brought to you by the fine folks at ASMP. It’s on WEDNESDAY of this week. I’ll be presenting, talking about my personal experiences in the legal system as well as with the new media. But
perhaps certainly more useful, there will be a panel and I’ll be lucky enough to be seated alongside the esteemed Harvard Law professor/founder of the Creative Commons, Lawrence Lessig, plus a whole bunch of other talented and smart people above my pay grade and moral standing.
Wednesday, April 21, 2010. TimesCenter, 242 West 41st St. New York, NY 10018
It’s FREE. Register here to attend. Schedule details and a list of my co-panelists after the jump
