If you want to know why the panel was 'conflict free' note the fact that Gigi Sohn, Lawrence Lessig and Fred Von Lohman are all on the FMC advisory board.

The FMC is hardly 'conflict free' in the
area of Copyright advocacy.

Thanks for commenting, Anonymous. I'd thank you by name, but I suppose I don't have that option.

I can tell you that the range of perspectives held by my fellow panelists on copyright issues was quite broad. If you read the post, you'll also see that all of us were supportive of coordinated efforts to protect intellectual property in the digital realm.

That's likely why it wasn't contentious.

You might even want to watch the video, which was just posted:

Oh, and if you look at our advisory board, you'll also see pro-copyright folks like Rick Carnes and Ann Chaitovitz.

Not that FMC isn't pro-copyright — we like copyright so much that we want more artists to retain control over theirs — but our boards are hardly monolithic in their views. We like to hear a range of opinions on pretty much every issue, because it helps us better understand the space.

Internet piracy is now common and becoming more developed. This can be dangerous and used for good or bad reasons!
