Copyright's Paradox

Neil Weinstock Netanel


Copyright is at once an engine of free expression and impediment to free expression. Copyright law underwrites much literature, journalism, music, art, and film. Yet copyright often stands in the way of speech that would build upon existing expression to convey new messages and artistic perspectives.

Keywords: copyright, free speech, free expression, first amendment, digital, media, expressive diversity, remix, journalism, movies
