      Who Owns the Garden of the Mind?

      Once called the OEThomas Jefferson of cyberspaceí John Perry Barlow has
      beena Wyoming rancher, co-writer of songs with The Grateful Dead, and a
      key
      figure in debates about cyberliberties, copyright in a digital age, and
      the
      digital divide. He has been on Wiredís masthead since its inception and
      his
      manifesto A Declaration of Independence of Cyberspace has been widely
      distributed on the net. On an increasingly surveillanced planet, and in
      a
      world where intellectual property is owned by major corporations such as
      AOL/Time Warner, John Perry Barlow talks about politics and ownership.

      IS COPYRIGHT A GOOD THING?

      Whatís OEfairí about OEfair useí? What happens to intellectual property
      when it is in the public domain? Who should determine the relative
      rights
      and responsibilities in relation to artists and their works? Does
      technology make a difference? As a follow up to last years CODE
      conference
      in
      Cambridge, we present a panel debate on the rights and wrongs of private
      property vs public domain. Speakers include: John Howkins, author of The
      Creative Economy, Penguin 2002; Jennifer Jenkins, the director of the
      Centre For The Study of the Public Domain, Duke University; Vicki
      Bennett,
      artist (aka People Like Us), novelist Stewart Home; sound artist Joe
      Banks
      and
      Karsten Schubert, editor of the recently published book on copyright
      Dear
