About CopyrightX

copyrightxCopyrightX is a course on Copyright Law, developed by Professor William Fisher III at Harvard Law School and first offered online in the spring semester of 2013, under the auspices of the HarvardX distance-learning initiative, and the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society. The next Harvard Law School CopyrightX - Turin University Affiliated Course will be taught from mid-February to mid-May of 2022.

The course explores the current law of copyright, the impact of that law on art, entertainment, and industry, and the ongoing debates concerning how the law should be reformed. Through a combination of recorded lectures, assigned readings, weekly seminars, live interactive webcasts, and online discussions, participants in the course, examine and assess the ways in which the copyright system seeks to stimulate and regulate creative expression.
