CopyrightX, is the new EdX distance-learning course on copyright to be offered under the auspices of the EdX initiative in the spring of 2013. The course will explore the current law of copyright and the ongoing debates concerning how that law should be reformed. Through a combination of pre-recorded lectures (by Prof. Fisher), live webcasts, and weekly online seminars (led by Harvard Law School teaching fellows), participants in the course will examine and assess the ways in which law seeks to stimulate and regulate creative expression.
If you wish to self study, the course materials should be made as widely available as possible online. Copies of all of the components of the CopyrightX course will be posted at the following address: http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/people/6/CopyrightX_Homepage_2013.htm.
The “special events” will be webcast and can be watch live in conjunction with the course.
These materials would enable you, if you wished, to construct a self-study distance-learning course that would parallel the CopyrightX course itself.
I am hoping to organise a “satellite” course, as suggested by the organisers. We can create a group of people interested in studying Copyright together. Members of the group can study the materials, we can then meet online, using Google hangout for instance and discuss the issues and problems raised by those materials. If you are interested , please send me your email and express your interest under ‘comments’. Hope to create a vibrant group with animated discussions.
