Up in your Bits: Intellectual Property, Privacy and Network Rights
The internet has now become the primary vehicle for artists and entrepreneurs to distribute and promote music. But what if you don’t want your stuff flying freely through “the tubes?” Leaving room for continued innovation while retaining control over content is a complicated matter. This panel will explore the far-reaching impact of our networked culture on music, creativity, intellectual property and privacy. Should ISPs engage in filtering, deep packet inspection or throttling to limit unauthorized filesharing? Should the privacy rights of social media users and services outweigh the need to monitor for possible infringement? Are lawsuits against YouTube and other hubs for user-driven content effective? In this discussion, expert panelists will explore the tension between creator compensation, net neutrality, filtering, encryption, copyright litigation and privacy rights.
