Robert Levine, The Price of Free: How the Internet is Destroying the Culture Business, Wed., Nov. 2, 4:30pm
The fall 2011 Curb Creative Leadership Lecture features Robert Levine. He has written for Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, and the arts and business sections of the New York Times. In his first book, Free Ride, Levine charts how the media industry lost control of its destiny after laws made it possible for companies such as YouTube to build businesses on copyrighted content. This lecture contributes to the ongoing discussion facilitated by the Curb Center on the vitality of expressive life and creative enterprise in the United States. The lecture will be held in the First Amendment Center Lecture Hall, Vanderbilt University, 1801 Edgehill Ave.
