"Jefferson's Moose in Cyberspace"

ISOC-NY was pleased to co-sponsor, with the Copyright Society of the U.S.A. NY Chapter, a luncheon program on Oct 22 2009. The speaker was David Post, author of In Search of Jefferson's Moose: Notes on the State of Cyberspace.

The Internet has become the dominant distribution channel for music, film, images, and text, but it is far beyond any technology the founders of this country even dreamed of -- and we never seemed prepared for the next development. What does the Internet's history -- and history in general -- tell us about where the Internet may be headed and what that will mean for copyright?

Prof. Post takes a fresh look at the Internet, including why Thomas Jefferson had a moose shipped to him in Paris while he was serving as US minister to France -- and why we should care. .
