Kochi: Carl Malamud, American technologist, author, and public domain advocate, known for his foundation Public.Resource.Org will be visiting Cochin University of Science and Technology (Cusat) on August 6, Monday,  to deliver a lecture on ‘universal access to (all) knowledge. The Inter University Centre for IPR Studies (IUCIPRS) of Cusat has organised the lecture.

Public.Resource.Org (“Public Resource”) is a California-based NGO widely credited with placing many large government databases online and then working with governments to get them to do it themselves. For the last few years, Public Resource has been working intensively in India, including an effort to make available all Indian Standards for free on the net, an issue that is the subject of Public Internet Litigation in the High Court of Delhi.  Carl started the first radio station on the Internet and is the author of nine books, including most recently - with Sam Pitroda - ‘Code Swaraj: Field Notes from the Standards Satyagraha’.

 

Carl Malamud founded the Internet Multicasting Service. He was a visiting professor at the MIT Media Laboratory and is the former chairman of the Internet Software Consortium. He also is the co-founder of Invisible Worlds, was a fellow at the Center for Am-erican Progress, and was a board member of the non-profit Mozilla Foundation.
