Pizza M, 208 West Main Street, downtown Urbana

Does copyright protect creative work? What impact does copyright have on censorship? And what would happen if we abolished copyright? Join us for a provocative conversation with two guests: artist and copyright abolitionist Nina Paley and UIUC law professor and activist Paul Heald.

Delicious snacks from Pizza M will be provided.

Nina Paley is the creator of the animated musical feature film Sita Sings the Blues and the short This Land Is Mine. Her adventures in our broken copyright system led her to join as artist-in-residence, where she produced a series of animated shorts about intellectual freedom called Minute Memes. As half of PaleGray Labs, she develops techniques to combine animation with her other passions of quilting and embroidery. Nina is a former syndicated cartoonist, a 2006 Guggenheim Fellow, and currently making a new animated feature called Seder-Masochism.

Paul Heald lectures on patent, copyright and international intellectual property law around the world. He is the University of Illinois Richard W. and Marie L. Corman Professor of Law and is currently a fellow and associated researcher at CREATe, the RCUK Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy, based at the University of Glasgow. He’s also the author of a recently released mystery novel Death in Eden.

The Iron Post

Join us for the second in a series of “Jazz Talks” on Saturday April 4, 2015 from 5-7:00 pm at the Iron Post. Dorothy Martirano, Morgan Powell, Jeff Helgesen, Tom “Shab” Wirtel, and Sue & Bruce Wood will reminisce about their intersections with C-U music scene luminary, John Garvey, and share stories about the various musical adventures he championed at the University of Illinois. Tom Faux, ethnomusicologist and C4A faculty member, along with local jazz historian Jamie Hutchinson, will moderate the discussion. The cover is $10, and thanks to the Iron Post, all proceeds will go to support C4A, a non-profit community music school.

John Garvey was a fascinating character and multi-faceted musician; he joined the faculty of the University of Illinois in 1948 as a member of the Walden String Quartet, became principal teacher of viola, and went on to conduct several prestigious ensembles during his tenure. He is perhaps best known for establishing a jazz ensemble in 1959, long before the institution of a jazz curriculum in the School of Music. Garvey’s other musical interests include his work with the U of I Russian Orchestra.
