Levine Comes Alive!

Because you demanded it, here are two recordings from my U.S. tour.*

Here’s a Podcast from my appearance at Vanderbilt University’s Curb Center For Art, Enterprise & Public Policy.

And here’s a video of my appearance at USC’s Annenberg School of Communication.


*To be entirely honest, no one demanded this and my “U.S. tour” amounted to a handful of speaking engagements punctuated by inconvenient air travel and fast food. But I had fun!

  1. Good stuff – it’s an important argument that needs wider dissemination. It’s certainly a good introduction to the book. It’s important that the argument gets beyond people just free versus paid and gets closer to the people making money by piggybacking on the work of other people.

  2. For those of us who were lucky to see and hear you it was a very good “U.S. tour”.

  3. Nice speech, Robert. I may not agree with all of it, but it does come over as well thought out.

    • Pieter, Thanks, I really appreciate that. I lose my temper sometimes, like everyone else online, but I do want to reach people who might not be inclined to agree with me. One of the nicest compliments I had on the book was from someone who worked with Creative Commons who said I didn’t convince him that he was wrong but he had started to think about these issues in a different way.
