Compensation, Access, and Theft: Copyright in the 21st Century

Saturday, April 9th, 4:15pm
Judson Memorial Church (across from Washington Sq Park)
NYC Anarchist Book Fair

**AUDIO FROM THE EVENT (thanks to Dan V.)

Autonomedia publisher Jim Fleming
Craig O'Hara, co-founder of PM Press and the Tabling Tornados
Karl Fogel from Question Copyright
Radical Reference librarian Aliqae Geraci
Victoria Law, author of Resistance Behind Bars

Moderated by Melissa Morrone.

Our panelists from the radical publishing community will be asked to consider the following questions:

  • How can authors/illustrators be fairly compensated for their work, particularly by radical publishers?
  • How can the above be accomplished while also maintaining broad access to authors’/illustrators’ work?
  • How can radical publishers stay in business in the 21st century?
  • How does current copyright law work with and against what you’re trying to do (whether you’re an author, a publisher, or a librarian)?
  • How should digital versions/editions of work be treated?

Visit our table at the NYC Anarchist Book Fair anytime on April 9th at Judson Memorial Church on the south side of Washington Square. It's free and you don't have to be an anarchist to come!

And if you're interested, get involved by volunteering at the book fair! For anything from greeting and handing out programs to childcare, and you'll be much more appreciated than if you volunteered at the NY Art Book Festival. More info at or email
