OII SDP 2007 (XVII): Copyright 2010: The Future of Copyright

Leads: Brian Fitzgerald, Wendy Seltzer, Bill McGeveran*

This session will examine the role of copyright law in the Internet world. It will consider recent cases concerning YouTube, Google and Sony highlighting what the law currently provides and asking – what it should be?

(*) though scheduled, Bill McGeveran could not come

Moral rights: stay with the person, the creator
Economic rights: go to the copyright holder, that can be the creator himself or whoever own these rights. And the copyright system is about permission. Infringement is about seeing what was there before, what is out there now, and guess whether there is any relationship.

Main work for the session is at the Wiki Page for the session
