Index: The Piracy Project
Andrea Francke and will be contributing to the session titled “Borrowing” of this reading group at Yale Law School convened by Sara Petrilli-Jones (Yale Law School), Pierre Von-Ow (Yale History of Art), Enrico Camporesi (Centre Pompidou Paris) at Yale Law School – supervised by Professor Amy Kapczynski (Yale University).
This reading group asks how the law of intellectual property – particularly copyright, and primarily in the United States, though with occasional comparative studies – shapes the ways we create, copy, and disseminate images across media, whether in print books and publications or via various digital channels. We consider the ways in which copyright––and important exceptions, like fair use––impact who is able to access and use images, and how they do so.
Our approach to these questions is historically grounded, interdisciplinary, and collaborative:
We will delve into the historical and theoretical foundations of image ‘theft,’ reproduction, and (re)use, in the law as well as other disciplines. We will examine not only how images have been copied, transmitted, and appropriated, but also the changing moral and legal intuitions about such practices over time and across media.
Please join us on Friday 17 July for the opening of Resource — a group exhibition inspired by the 1927 founding manifesto of the Bluecoat to promote not only the arts, but also the diffusion of useful knowledge. We have shipped The Piracy Collection to Liverpool to set up a temporary Reading Room for the duration of the exhibition alongside works by Clay Arlington, Jack Brindley, Ben Cain, Maurice Carlin, Daniel Eatock, Sean Edwards, Anne Harild with Blue Room, Jonzo, Laurence Payot, The Serving Library and Ian Whittlesea.
