Copyrights and other intellectual property rights. Seems like you can’t go a day without something in the news about these, yet from my own experience, it seems that very few people have any real grasp on even rudimentary intellectual property rights, what they are and why they are important. Even some of the most well-educated people can’t even name the basic ‘rights’ of copyright. Last I saw any statistics on the topic (just a couple of years ago), 70% of respondents were unable to demonstrate any accurate knowledge of intellectual property rights at all.
So, while I don’t know Zinnia Zauber at all, I think there should be more events like the one she is holding tomorrow. In an age where our creative works are less and less commonly embodied in physical substances, it is incumbent on us to understand both our rights and that of others.
