CopyArt: The Impact of Copyright on New Media Art


The San Francisco Media Arts Council (SMAC), in conjunction with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) Education Department, will host a panel discussion examining copyright issues from an art perspective. What is the history of appropriated images, objects, and texts? How are artists and their works protected by law? What changes are ahead in intellectual property rights and the economics of new media art? Join a diverse panel of leading artists and art professionals for an insightful discussion of how copyright laws are impacting analog art from a historical perspective.


Panelists include Jennifer Gonzalez, assistant professor of art history, University of California, Santa Cruz; Lawrence Lessig, professor of law, Stanford University; Christian Marclay, artist; moderator LindaJacobson, chief officer of Glass House Studio, LLC; and San Francisco Media Arts Council board member.
