You should write a short post, of 1000 words maximum, about a topic of your choice relating to one of the six course themes. The essay need not be about a topic we have already discussed in class, it merely must relate to one or more of the themes in a broad sense. An ideal essay would involve analysis and argument, and would cite sources or references within the essay. Feel free to do the links--that is, linking to references within the essay itself.
You should create a new page for your post. You can do this by going to http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/ptc/PostName, where Post Name is your title or an abbreviation of it. Then click the edit tab to add your text to the page. You should then post a link to your post on this page with the title and/or a short description.
The Elevator Pitch
Your name (Example)
- Remix Culture and the Fleeting Sustainability of Copyright
- In this essay, I examine the effect that remix culture has had on copyright law doctrine, and I make the argument that the current and growing practices surrounding derivative works has rendered current legal doctrine decreasingly relevant or sustainable.
