For the True IP Geek: Podcasts of IP Conferences

The Berkeley Center for Law & Technology has now made podcasts of its fabulous August IP conference available online here.

And the UC Davis Law Review has made our March “Intellectual Property and Social Justice” conference available as free podcasts on iTunes.

Putting audio of academic conferences online is a tremendous advance. It makes the leading scholarship available worldwide to those with access to the Internet. At the same time, it enables scholars who cannot attend multiple sessions occurring simultaneously to listen to what they missed–or to review sessions they found especially valuable.

Law Reviews should make this a standard practice.

The obvious next step: YouTube.

    I’d like to plug Lewis & Clark law school podcasts too:

    a great open-access repository.

    and of course, just search “Berkeley” in the iTunes music store to find some great courses (including Pam Samuelson’s seminar on open access and Tom LAcqueur’s History 5).

    PS: Justice Stevens called the inability to watch shows simultaneously due to “counterprogramming” a reason to let the VCR off the hook for secondary liability.
