Rick Prelinger: Beyond Copyright Consciousness

Rick Prelinger, a film archivist and proponent of “copyright conservancy” offers a way around the wars of attrition raging over intellectual property rights: his partnership with the Internet Archive leads by example with over 1,500 films in high-resolution MPEG2 format for use by anyone, anywhere. “People want to learn, play, and be entertained, and they tend to find ways around control mechanisms”, he says, alluding to the wild popularity of Napster. “We used to just go ahead and copy; now we talk about copyright, our freedom to violate it, and the latest tools that enable us to do so.” In response to this cultural trend, Rick Prelinger invites us to imagine a future beyond copyright consciousness.
