Here’s the second talk I gave to the Southern California Writers Association on May 15.
This one’s about the changing roles and even nature of authorship in the digital age, and the way digital media affect our notions of copyright and intellectual property, and therefore the business models that have been axiomatic to most writers their entire lives. A much more contentious issue than the first speech, and therefore a much more fun one to give.
SCWA members weren’t shy about chiming in, either, which I just loved.[audio:http://www.steveboy.com/audio/scwa_-_new_takes_on_copyright_and_authorship.mp3]
