  • Intellectual Property Issues in Social Media

    by Daxton Stewart, Kathleen Olson, Riyad Omar and Victoria Ekstrand

    Social media have made sharing information with friends and followers easier and quicker, but federal copyright law is struggling to adapt to the challenges presented by these tools. When hot news breaks, how soon can it be tweeted? If an image is shared via Flickr or Facebook, can it be used for news or marketing purposes? Is it fair use to post portions of song lyrics, news articles, or YouTube videos on your Tumblr? What legal ramifications do mock Twitter accounts face? Will Creative Commons save us all? This panel of attorneys, scholars and media professionals discuss how courts and the industry have been handling these issues and some possible solutions to resolve them.

    At 11:00am to 12:00pm, Saturday 10th March

    In Capital Ballroom, Omni Downtown
