Aram Sinnreich on Intellectual Property and Cultural Expression
In this episode, Dr. Aram Sinnreich, Associate Professor in the School of Communication at American University, discusses his book "The Essential Guide to Intellectual Property," which is published by Yale University Press, as well as his work on the cultural history of intellectual property more generally. Sinnreich begins by describing the book and its intended purpose. He explains what he thinks is missing from intellectual property discourse. And he reflects on how he conceptualizes intellectual property and ownership in commerce in relation to authorship and attribution. Sinnreich is on Twitter at @aram.
