Are you a creative person? Have you ever downloaded free music? Photocopied an article? Had an idea for an invention? Have you ever wondered how society and government balance the need to encourage creativity with a system that treats a person's creative output as "property"? Jim Pooley, an expert on intellectual property law, will inaugurate this seminar by answering the question: "Does Intellectual Property Support or Inhibit Individual Freedom and Creativity?" He will discuss how individual rights and the creative process are affected by those laws, including copyrights, patents and trade secrets. The presentation will include issues of history, technology, social science, government, law, music, literature, and international politics. A question and answer period will follow.
