WARNING! Starting on July 30th, 2015, we have started to rebuild from scratch the whole website of the Free Technology Academy, to make it much easier to maintain and use than it was before. We haven't finished yet!

Online course on Copyright, and its impacts on art, entertainment and industry
we received, and gladly forward here, news of an interesting course: CopyrightX is an online course, offered by HarvardX, Harvard Law School, and the Berkman Center. The course explores the current law of copyright; the impact of that law on art, entertainment, and industry; and the ongoing debates concerning how the law should be reformed. It's made up of three types of courses: a residential HLS course on copyright taught by Terry Fisher; online sections taught by Harvard teaching fellows to students from around the world; and affiliated courses taught in countries other than the U.S. The course is currently accepting applications for spots in the CopyrightX online sections. The application process opens on October 15 and closes on December 15. CopyrightX 2015 will begin on January 26 and run for 12 weeks.
