Copyright soup for the journalist’s soul

Check out these two short talks from the annual TED conference to learn what the world of high fashion, a dancing Jesus and the Muppets can teach us about the archaic world of copyright law. A few months ago, Dr. Johanna Blakley, of USC’s Norman Lear Center, gave the first presentation, “Lessons from fashion’s free culture.”

Listening to her reminded me of a 2007 TED conference talk by Dr. Larry Lessig, now of Harvard then with Stanford. Lessig discussed ways to prevent copyright law from thwarting the potential of Internet users to benefit society with their creativity.
