MIT Free Culture

We are MIT Free Culture, MIT's student group dedicated to freedom on the internet and in the digital world. Our projects educate the MIT community and sometimes the world about fair use, free software, and open access. We educate ourselves too by regular discussions with local experts.

In late 2007 and 2008 we created YouTomb, a project to see what gets taken down by copyright allegations on YouTube and why. You can read more about our issues and other projects.

We support the national Students for Free Culture organization as a chapter.

We meet every two weeks to talk about projects and hear from local experts. Time and place are announced to our mailing list. Come by to join our projects, start your own, or just hang out and discuss.
