The Collision of Ideas

OnCopyright 2010: The Collision of Ideas

The debate over copyright—its value, its limits, its virtues and its future—is raging as never before. Technology innovation is creating new models for content distribution and disrupting the economics of entire industries. Ad-based media companies are wondering what the future holds and are questioning whether high-quality content is still a viable commodity. Artists are exploring new forms of creativity and pushing the edges of rights and ownership ever outward. And there are new calls from all quarters for changes in the laws governing fair use, search, aggregation and more.

Join us at OnCopyright 2010 as we explore these questions and more with some of the leading experts, practitioners and thinkers of the day. It's our future. It's OnCopyright.
