"Lawrence Lessig’s presentation last Thursday at OVA’s first Wireside Chat was a huge success. Over 3,000 unique visitors tuned in, plus hundreds more watched at over 40 local screening events. But since Lessig’s slidecast of the 45-minute talk contained 15-second clips of copyrighted music by Warner Music Group, the YouTube version was literally silenced!
Lessig’s talk—in case you missed it—was about, of all things, the importance of fair use and current copyright issues. His presentation was highly critical and thoroughly educational—as TechDirt put it, “There could be no clearer example of fair use.”""
