Hi, My name is Douglas Turek. You can call me Doug. I'm a witty, somewhat scruffy bookseller and happily married husband and father. I write science fiction and fantasy and poetry, some of which will show up here. Feel free to drop me a line at my first name Douglas, followed by an R, then Turek, add in the pleasing at sign, gmail, then the ubiquitous 'com'. Why not ask me a question? Here's my flavors.me page. What I've liked
From the Center for the Study of the Public Domain website, ” It’s the collision of documentary filmmaking and intellectual property law, and it’s the inspiration for this new comic book. Follow its heroine Akiko as she films her documentary, and navigates the twists and turns of intellectual property. Why do we have copyrights? What’s “fair use”? Bound By Law reaches beyond documentary film to provide a commentary on the most pressing issues facing law, art, property and an increasingly digital world of remixed culture.”
Free digital version of the comic are available here, offered in HTML, PDF, Flash Animation.
Authored by cartoonist Keith Aoki, Law Professor James Boyle, and Jennifer Jenkins, lawyer and Director of Duke’s Center for the Study of the Public Domain. Includes an Introduction written by writer and blogger Cory Doctorow. Wow!
