Freedom of Expression: Resistance and Repression in the Age of Intellectual Property

Freedom of Expression: Resistance and Repression in the Age of Intellectual Property Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Freedom of Expression® covers the ways in which intellectual property laws have been used to privatize all forms of expression—from guitar riffs and Donald Trump’s “you’re fired” gesture to human genes and public space—and in the process stifle creative expression. Kembrew McLeod challenges the blind embrace of privatization as it clashes against our right to free speech and shared resources.

 

Kembrew McLeod is professor of communication studies at the University of Iowa, author of Owning Culture: Authorship, Ownership, and Intellectual Property Law, and coproducer of the documentary Copyright Criminals: This Is a Sampling Sport.

 

Lawrence Lessig is professor of law at Stanford Law School.

 

This book’s documentary companion will be available through Media Education Foundation.

Book News Annotation:

McLeod (communications studies, U. of Iowa) does not argue for the abolition of intellectual property laws, but that the recent restrictions that have been imposed in the digital age need to be rolled back. Originally published in 2005 by Doubleday with the subtitle Overzealous Copyright Bozos and Other Enemies of Creativity. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In 1998 the author, a professional prankster, trademarked the phrase "freedom of expression" to show how the expression of ideas was being restricted. Now he uses intellectual property law as the focal point to show how economic concerns are seriously eroding creativity and free speech.
