This Wednesday – Copyright and the New Economy

chase jarvis - copyright is complexI want my work to be protected and used only when I want and how I want. But I also want it to be consumable in the new media. Confused like the rest of us?

If you make art for a living or are interested in the rapidly evolving rights for people who create stuff–and especially if you live in/around NYC–then point yourself at this FREE day-long symposium brought to you by the fine folks at ASMP. It’s on WEDNESDAY of this week. I’ll be presenting, talking about my personal experiences in the legal system as well as with the new media. But perhaps certainly more useful, there will be a panel and I’ll be lucky enough to be seated alongside the esteemed Harvard Law professor/founder of the Creative Commons, Lawrence Lessig, plus a whole bunch of other talented and smart people above my pay grade and moral standing.

Wednesday, April 21, 2010. TimesCenter, 242 West 41st St. New York, NY 10018

    I hope the “revolution” is televised… or at least recorded for later viewing online. Glad you’re getting the chance to finally cross paths with Lawrence Lessig. This is one panel discussion I regret not being able to attend in person.

      I would like to watch it too. :)

    I hope ASMP will record this and post it like they’ve done with their last two conferences! I’d love to see it, but I live in Washington.

    I’m glad to hear about this! Photographers need more rights as creatives. Hope to learn a lot from this!

      You can have all the usage rights you want–that’s up to you when you negotiate for the job. The problem is there are too many photographers and not enough work, plus a sour economy and ailing print media. So it’s difficult to get work unless you take less pay or less rights or both. Supply and demand…

    Ahh Man! Stuck in Buffalo on a movie set for this, oh well! Audio or video recording?

    Thanks for posting this Chase!

    Wish I wasn’t in Florida. Since it’s free will there be an audio download or something available after? This info is invaluable!

    Is a video of the panel and your speech going to be posted online? It would be very appreciated by us young photographers that can’t quite afford ASMP memberships.

    Please post this online on youtube or vimeo? I won’t be able to make it on Wednesday.

    I live in Europe and it is kinda difficult to get there but watching it online would be helpful.

  9. Steve Munoz April 20, 2010 at 6:54 am #

    I hope there will be a video recording of this for later, or at least audio. Will it be streamed live, or hosted later?

    I’m willing, but not able, to be there! Like others, I too hope that this will be available to watch and/or listen to later. Thanks again, Chase, for all you do! (I’m loving!)

    Doesn’t look like my parents will let me venture into the city alone- Maybe next time!

    “above my pay grade and moral standing” Ha- love your sense of humor Chase!

    We really need to take a serious look at this issue! I’m Glad ASMP is taking the lead on this. Thanks Chase.

    Oh I so wish I could go.

    And holy crap you moved to WordPress. Was it painful? I am still on Blogger (did the stupid migration and everything) and seriously considering jumping ship.

    P.S. THANK YOU for the book. We need to discuss an image in there – of the AMC tower, which you call Acme Tower. Was that shot in Denver?

    I’ve been selling stock photos for several years now and about a year ago began studying arguments against intellectual property, and my eyes were pretty much torn open. You should really listen to this audio book (its free!). It’s really helped me understand something rather simple: you can only reliably sell the things you can reliably control – and “intellectual property” just isn’t one of those things. It’s time for creative individuals to start thinking differently.

    “Against Intellectual Property”:

      Yeah, remember how music labels reacted when the iPod was first released? Of course you don’t want to totally cave and give everything away, but on the other hand if you don’t adapt to change you’ll screw yourself.

    A neighbour of mine told me to check out your blog three weeks ago, since both of us enjoy the same things (yeah we’re close friends, clone heads, been 24 years) and I seriously got to say that Im majorly impressed. Me and my friend were actually considering to launch an identical website just like yours, however, we had some struggles. 1st, neither of us both is a technology-savvy individual, 2ndly, we don’t really know where to start…. I know alot of people managed to get their dot coms on the web just recently (due to cheap prices, and so on) but we are still having difficulties. I would really appreciate it if you recommend to us a place to begin from, because we don’t have a clue L0L. Indeed it sucks being 33 year old internet literates… or should I say dot com literates?

    Always good to find something new and interesting to learn from. Great website you’ve got here.

    An fascinating chat is value analysis. I consider that you should enter more on this topic, it might not live a inviolable focus except typically those are not ample to speak taking place such topics. To the next. Cheers
