Panel 4/18: New Media Artists and the Law

Cameron Parkins, April 14th, 2008

This Friday, April 18, at 7PM CC’s Creative Director Eric Steuer will be speaking on a panel titled New Media Artists and the Law at The Kirsch Conference Center in San Jose, CA. Hosted by California Lawyers for the Arts, Eric will be joined by Emily A. Berger, Intellectual Property Fellow with Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Joel Slayton, Director of the CADRE Laboratory for New Media, for a discussion of “the ways copyright laws are implicated in new media art and the challenges artists face in this evolving area of the law.”

The panel promises to be quite fascinating, with topics including “derivative works, best practices, defensible positions, reproduction and public display rights and the Internet, peer-to-peer file sharing, streaming, [and] fair use”. With three diverse backgrounds on hand, these issues will diverge and converge in unexpected ways that are bound to prove enlightening. All relative information below:
