Access and copyright

Mary Wong, Copyright and Access to Knowledge, a public talk at Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet & Society, March 20, 2007.  It's now available in a 63-minute podcast.  From the Berkman Center blurb:

Mary Wong of Franklin Pierce Law Center joins Berkman Center guests, fellows, and staff to discuss the growing discourse around such topics as “the commons,” “free culture,” and “open content.” ...

Professor Wong addresses the extent to which these terms are rhetoric or signals of change; how “openness” can be stunted by lack of clarity in copyright standards; and what the future may hold in light of technological advancements.
