Abstract

No Copyright, No Probem?
A spoken word show performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018, as part of the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas series.

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 large corporations? Or does copyright also serve the interests of individual creators more effectively than we might think? Join Smita Kheria, intellectual property law expert (The University of Edinburgh), to find out whether copyright has a positive role to play, or could we live without it in today’s post-digital society. Creators and consumers, professionals and amateurs, rights holders and pirates, come along and have your say!
