CMU Copyright Conference

Some enterprising artists at Carnegie Mellon are having an art fest/copyright law conference this weekend, and the keynote speaker is my law professor colleague from Duke, Jamie Boyle. The conference earned a nice piece of promotion in this morning's Post-Gazette - even if the headline is a little misleading (don't go to the conference expecting answers to anything!). Here is the conference website.

The coolest thing buried in the story is the "Bound by Law" comic book all about copyright law and fair use (cover above), copies of which apparently will be distributed for free at the conference. Jamie Boyle is a co-author of the book. It was drawn by my colleague Keith Aoki, multitalented law professor extraordinaire.

Go to the conference to hear a witty talk by Jamie, and to see some cool art, but you don't have to go in order to get a copy of the comic. Copies can be downloaded for free from the Duke Center for the Public Domain website.
