Creative Copyright Event at UO Portland, July 16th for Musicians, Artists, Writers


This program is part of the UO Portland Summer Spotlight series.

Interested in how copyright law affects creative work? Itching to write your own version of copyright law? Curious to know how musicians and artists might talk to an entertainment attorney, and vice versa?

Join the UO Portland Library and Learning Commons at 6:30 pm on Thursday, July 16 for “Free Culture: Creating Copyright and Copyrighting Creation,” a lively discussion of copyright and the arts. UO alum and entertainment lawyer Peter Shaver will talk with Portland-based electropop trio YACHT, and will engage the audience in a real-time redraft of copyright law.

This event is co-sponsored by the UO Portland Library and Learning Commons, UO Academic Affairs, and the UO Cultural Forum. It’s part of a larger series of summer events around themes of creativity, sustainability, and urban culture. All events are free and open to the public, and will be held at the UO Portland at 70 NW Couch Street.
