Generation Y meets Printing Press Law: Copyright questions in the digital age
Friday, March 21 , 2008

Brian Rowe | Freedom for IP, Founder
Sarah Davies | ACLU of Washington, Internet Operations Manager
Others TBA

This interactive panel discussion will delve into the sticky mess of online copyright. User-generated content is an unforeseen battle-ground for legal rights on the internet. We will talk about what some organizations have done to clarify ownership of online content, from very restrictive to entirely open. Your organization’s values around community and sharing should be reflected in your copyright choices. Help us discuss how to make those choices and what your plans and fears are for the future.
