World's Fair Use Day is January 12 – Join the Public Knowledge Event

Public Knowledge is hosting World’s Fair Use Day at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. on January 12th.

World’s Fair Use Day (WFUD) is a free, all-day celebration of the doctrine of fair use: the legal right that allows innovators and creators to make particular uses of copyrighted materials.

The event has a great line-up of artists, policymakers, and pundits including:

  • Representative Mike Doyle (PA 14th)
  • Dan Walsh of ‘Garfield minus Garfield’
  • Marc Hosler of Negativland
  • DJ Earworm
  • Mike Masnick of Techdirt
  • Brett Gaylor of ‘RIP: A Remix Manifesto’
  • Nina Paley of ‘Sita Sings the Blues’
  • Chris Burke, a machinima artist
  • Eliza Kreisinger, a mash-up artist
  • Jonathan McIntosh, a mash-up artist

If you can’t make it to the free event, it will be webcast; it looks great, so we encourage you to check it out!
