Recap of the Copyright Office’s Section 512 Study Roundtable

On Monday, I participated in a Copyright Office roundtable regarding their long-delayed report on Section 512.

"And a lot of the way that we talk about time really finds its roots in the Industrial Revolution. So prior to that, we would talk about time as merely passing the time. After the Industrial Revolution, suddenly, we begin to talk about time as spending time. It becomes something that is tethered to monetary value. So when we think about hourly wage, we now talk about time in terms of wasting time or spending time. And that's a really different understanding of time than, you know, like seasonal ...
