Those attending the upcoming Sheffield Doc/Fest (which takes place November 5 to 9) will be able to hear a keynote speech by James Boyle on copyright, licensing and digital distribution. As a founder of Creative Commons, which works to facilitate the free availability of art, scholarship, and cultural materials by developing machine-readable licenses that individuals and institutions can attach to their work, Boyle will discuss the clearance culture. All Doc/Fest delegates must register by October 20. For more info, visit Doc/Fest’s website.
