WHEN:

Tuesday January 12, 2010 in Washington, D.C.

WHERE:

The Newseum, which is located at 555 Pennsylvania Ave. NW (walking distance from the Judiciary Square Red Line Metro). Enter the Newseum using the entrance on 6th Street. Upon entering, look for the WFUD signs.

I’m speaking sometime between 2:50 and 4 P.M. on the stipulated subject of the Copyfight and “the repurposing of existing and/or copyrighted works in the world of culture jamming,” part of “a ‘speed panel,’ which will consist of short presentations from other panelists.'”

Also on the bill are Mark Hosler of Negativland and Chris Burke of This Spartan Life.
