Abstract

No Copyright, No Probem?

A spoken word show performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017, as part of the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas. Show description: Is copyright necessary? Does it hinder or does it help? What would happen if there was no copyright? Without it, who benefits and who loses out? Is copyright just for corporations? Or does copyright also serve the interests of individual creators (artists, writers, musicians, etc) more effectively than we might think? Join Smita Kheria, intellectual property law expert (University of Edinburgh), to find out whether copyright matters or could we live without it.
