Copyright Workshop at AmU

This sounds most edifying:

    Title: Paying Artists, Protecting Innovation: New Alternatives For Resolving the Digital Copyright Debate

    Description:This is a one-day workshop to discuss the rights of writers, composers, musicians and moviemakers to obtain copyright licensing for use of their work online. Anyone interested in law, entertainment and technology should not miss this opportunity to learn about various forms of licensing and the practical and theoretical issues associated with their use. Although admission is free, seating is limited, so please reserve your place as soon as possible.

    MONDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2002
    WASHINGTON COLLEGE OF LAW
    4801 MASSACHUSETTS AVENUE, NW
    ROOM 603
    9:30 AM – 4:30 PM

    Writers, composers, musicians and moviemakers have a right to be paid when
    their work is used online as well as off. But life is not always so
    fair. Peer-to-peer networks can make a mockery of this basic principle,
    while efforts to “lock up” content have encountered a host of technological
    and legal problems. The resulting clash of corporate and consumer interests
    has proved rancorous, to say the least. But there is cause for hope.

    Applying these familiar techniques in the Internet environment would give
    rise to a number of interesting challenges. The one-day workshop described
    in this brochure is the first attempt to gather a group of experts to
    canvass various forms of licensing and the practical and theoretical issues
    associated with their use.
