People interested in art and copyright and piracy and books will enjoy learning about the Piracy Project.

With a series of talks from guest speakers, workshops and an open call for pirated book projects to add to a Piracy Collection we aim to develop a critical and creative platform for issues raised by acts of cultural piracy. After a period of research and production at Byam Shaw Reading Room in London this unique collection of books will travel to international venues in 2011.

Check out their lovely catalog of art/books. They will be coming to New York City next week, here is some advance press for their “discussion and book pirating session”
