Open Access

As a continuation from our first episode, we continue exploring copyright and open access in Canadian Universities. We speak with the editors of the open access University of Toronto Medical Journal, a business lawyer who specializes in intellectual property, and the public lead of Creative Commons Canada. Through the lens of Aaron Swartz, a computer prodigy who took his own while facing up to 35-years in prison and $1 million in fines, this episode wonders about the future open access and how the internet has transformed notions of ownership in relation to intellectual property.
