Travel Talks with James Salzman & Michael Heller "Mine! How the Hidden Rules of Ownership Control Our Lives"
Join us for our first ever Travel Talks book lecture and conversation presented by co-authors, James Salzman, Harvard Alumni Travels study leader, and Michael Heller.

When is it okay to recline your airplane seat? Why does HBO want you to share your password illegally? What do you really own when you click the “buy now” button? And why can’t you sell your spare kidney? In this webinar, two acclaimed law professors – authors of Mine! How the Hidden Rules of Ownership Control Our Lives – will explore fun, surprising, and often infuriating real-life stories that reveal who gets what in the 21st century. Remarkably, the same simple stories kids use to solve fights on the playground also offer our best chance to preserve online freedom, cool our warming planet, and curb America’s new wealth aristocracy.

Please complete this registration form to confirm your attendance. Space is limited and on a first come, first serve basis! This lecture will be recorded and shared with you. Please note, the video will only be available to view for one week.
