Free Culture @ NYU

Students for Free Culture at NYU is a chapter of a national student movement exploring the nature of innovation in the context of American copyright law and media distribution. Free Culture is dedicated to the promotion of thoughtful and progressive discourse and debate, as well as relevant social activism. We stand behind the principles of a “common sense” approach to intellectual property rights as presented by Lawrence Lessig in his book “Free Culture.” We hope to serve those members of the NYU community with an intent in preserving an open exchange of creative issues.
