Reminder: The Case For Copyright Reform: Techdirt Book Club For June

from the read-up dept

We mentioned this earlier in the month, but just wanted to pass on a reminder that the June "Techdirt Book Club" book is The Case for Copyright Reform, by Rick Falkvinge (founder of the first Pirate Party) and Christian Engstrom (Member of European Parliament). Both Christian and Rick will be joining us for an online discussion/Q&A on June 29th at 11am PT, and I'm sure it will be a spirited discussion. The book is, of course, available for free download at the link above if you haven't yet had a chance to read it.

    Does anyone have a case for not abolishing IP laws.

    Oh, IP abolition may put the profit margins of govt. established monopolists in danger? The profit margins of the middlemen will dwindle if you abolish them? Is that your case?

      We'll be using CoverItLive's live blogging platform, which works well for Q&A type settings.
