No. 7 "Art and Intellectual Property Rights: New Role of Creative Commons"

Japanese-English simultaneous translation available

The arrival of the information age and the potential to share vast amounts of data have prompted some to call for a reconsideration of the concepts of intellectual property and copyright law. This is a field that is of obvious importance to the visual arts. Creative Commons is a nonprofit organization (established in 2001) that aims to develop and support the circulation of information and intellectual property by providing a flexible range of protections and freedoms. Lawrence Lessig, a founding board member of Creative Commons, discusses the progress of Creative Commons to date and what lies ahead for it in the future.
