I just got notice form NTC that I get to run a panel again this year at NTC. Here is are basics:
Dear Brian C Rowe -
Congratulations! You have been selected to be a Session Designer for the 2009 Nonprofit Technology Conference on April 26-28, 2009. We are thrilled to have you! We would like you to serve as session designer for:
Fair Use, User Generated Content, Terms of Service and the DMCA Safe Harbor
A panel discussion with professionals from NPOs and the legal profession to help answer your questions and provide access to best practices around User Generated Content. This session will include 3 short presentations and lots of time for Q&A. Samples best practices and hands on resources will also be provided.
1. HOW TO: use Fair Use for your campaigns and members
2. Best Practices for Terms of Service related to UGC
3. Understanding the basics of the DMCA with regard to UGC
This will be fun. Last year Sarah and I ran a panel to a packed room on CC and Fair Use, which had great question. This year I am reaching out to EFF and ACLU NorCal to find a few strong legal speakers to join the panel.
