ROBERT LEVINE WILL SPEAK ABOUT INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AT BIME
AMERICAN JOURNALIST AND WRITER ROBERT LEVINE, AUTHOR OF ESSAY ‘PARÁSITOS’ (FREE RIDE), WILL SPEAK ABOUT INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AT BIME
A few months ago, journalist Iker Seisdedos defined it in newspaper El País as “Internet’s ‘all for free’ blow”. Journalist and writer settled in Berlin Robert Levine lays bare the dark interests of those promoting the elimination of copyright and stands up for culture and its authors in his essay ‘Parasitos. Cómo los oportunistas digitales están destruyendo el negocio de la cultura’ (‘Free Ride. How digital parasites are destroying the culture business, and how the culture business can fight back’ (Ariel).
‘Parasitos’ (‘Free Ride’) is a reading that raises again the debate on intellectual property’s evolution and addresses the way in which content creators can charge for their work without reducing the creative release sparked by the digital world.
Robert Levine was Billboard’s editor and contributor to Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone and the Art and Business section of The New York Times. He holds a degree in Political Science from Brandeis University, MA in journalism from Northwestern and won the First Prize from Ibercrea, which is given to those who defend and promote respect for intellectual property.
