At Reason Goes Hollywood, our 40th anniversary bash held November 14-15, 2008 in Los Angeles, Reason.tv's Nick Gillespie led a lively debate over freedom of expression, the First Amendment, intellectual property rights, and the history of obscenity law.
Participants included Michael Robertson, founder of MP3.com and a leading advocate for innovation in copyright laws; Martin Torgoff, author Can't Find My Way Home, a history of drugs in popular culture and a writer for the VH-1 series The Drug Years and Sex: The Revolution; and Allan Gelbard, well-known First Amendment lawyer currently representing pornographer John Stagliano (who makes a cameo appearance!) in federal court.
Approximately one hour.
