Copyright in Cyberspace

Copyright symbol and text

“Why have IP at all? The reason is that creative labour is valuable and important. It is noble work, work that is worthy of recognition and reward. It is work that should be dignified with the grant of a small dollop of state power – a property right.” Professor Robert Merges from Justifying Intellectual Property 2011.

I have recently written a post on Copyright for the Digital Photography Project 10×8. Visit www.10× to read the article.

Made in Hayes

Photo: Geoff Titley – The EMI Shipping Building in Hayes, Middlesex.

The shipping building and surrounding buildings were home to EMI for over 50 years with over 14,000 people employed there in its heyday in the 1960’s. As part of an ongoing project at The Sir John Cass School of Art Architecture and Design, I am undertaking story collecting with people who worked at this EMI site over the years.

The project launches today, December 17th 2012 – “What was the first vinyl you bought?” session with local member for Hayes and Harlington John McDonnell and artist Bob and Roberta Smith.



The digital photography project, 10×8 is now underway. 10 artists and 1 musician are contributing their edits to 8 photos I provide. The result is 1 digital image, a digital 10×8, with sound.
