Free Culture Brown Bag

This week USF SLIS student Lana Brand will introduce us to the ideas underlying the Free Culture movement.

The Free Culture movement distinguishes itself from “permission culture.” Imagine you want to make a web video to promote your library. You found the song you want, but you need permission to use it. You found images you want to use, but you need permission to use them. You realize there’s a commercial billboard in one of your digital video shots. Do you need permission to use that?

The Free Culture movement works to create a shareable culture that anyone can re-use, re-cycle, and re-mix. It’s also closely associated with the ideas of open access and open source. Join us this Wednesday to learn more.
