Here’s a couple of interesting talks that I recently came across. The 1st is a TED Talk, and the 2nd is from the OReilly’s TOC - Tools of Change for Publishing Conference. They both provide some interesting commentary on digital media as a whole and on copyright. They’re both pretty funny and insightful, so have a listen if you’re interested.
The 1st video is the TED Talk, titled: The $8 billion iPod, by Rob Reid. Rob Reid is a humor author and the founder of the company that created the music subscription service Rhapsody. The video is described as follows:
“Rob Reid unveils Copyright Math™, a remarkable new field of study based on actual numbers from entertainment industry lawyers and lobbyists.”
