Traveling this weekend to New York City for the sold-out “Tools of Change (TOC 2010)” publishing industry conference? Consider putting on your schedule Copyright in Motion featuring Ned May, Director & Lead Analyst of the research firm Outsell.
Monday, February 22, at 9 a.m., May will release his latest report, “The State of Copyright in the Digital Age.” It’s packed with statistics on the use and sharing of copyrighted information, with some surprising findings, as well as “Five Essential Actions” for publishers to put in place today that can help them protect their intellectual property assets. Ahead of the presentation, May told Chris Kenneally that shifts in perception around “sharing” are cause for concern – and consolation – for publishers of all sizes.
The rise of “social media” – a topic May examines in depth – will also get a close examination on Tuesday, when CCC’s Edward Colleran hosts a panel discussion, “Rethinking Copyright for the Digital World,” with Rafat Ali of paidContent.org; Sree Sreenivasan, technology evangelist and Dean of Student Affairs at Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism; and Eric Schwartz (Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp LLP).
