Here is a video of a talk I gave recently on copying, copyright, and contemporary poetry with reference to Kim Dotcom, Socrates, Plato, print culture, Hegel, Mitt Romney, J.D. Salinger, Monty Python, Charles Dickens, Richard Prince, Kenneth Goldsmith, Simon Morris, Jack Kerouac, Sigmund Freud, iPhone apps, Gone with the Wind, The Wind Done Gone, Vanessa Place, Jonathan Stalling, and Sino-American relations.

The talk was presented as the 2012 University of Otago Carl Smith Lecture on 16 October 2012.
