Free Cultures - MAS214

This unit interrogates the relationships and tensions between media cultures and regulatory systems in the information age, contextualised in the information economy and the rhetoric of participatory culture. In the current intellectual property climate, the question of whether culture should be determined by control or freedom is one that rapidly requires close attention. This unit is of interest to students following media, cultural studies, music, creative arts and law programs. Students are not required to have any pre-existing legal knowledge.
