Berkman Fellow Lewis Hyde talks about the topic of his upcoming work, “the privatizing of the cultural commons.”

Hyde addresses many of the issues and concerns that modern copyright use presents to works traditionally open for public consumption. Referencing the life and work of Ben Franklin, he argues on behalf of the public’s need for access to traditionally public ideas and works for the benefit and progression of society.
