Combating Online Piracy: The Role of Voluntary Industry Initiatives
November 30, 2012 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
While legislative efforts aimed at online piracy have stalled, a number of collaborative efforts among Internet stakeholders have begun to move forward. These include the creation of a “copyright alert system” by major ISPs and content providers, proposals for best practices by cloud storage providers, and cooperative efforts by content providers with ad networks, financial intermediaries, and search engines.
Will such efforts by stakeholders have a measurable impact on protecting copyrighted material online? Do they raise potential policy issues? How can these be most effectively addressed?
Panelists at “Combating Online Piracy: The Role of Voluntary Industry Initiatives,” hosted by the Technology Policy Institute, will discuss these various multilateral initiatives that are part of a campaign to reduce piracy, educate users, and redirect them to legitimate sources of content. Participants will present important background on these various initiatives and explore potential issues in their implementation.
“Combating Online Piracy: The Role of Voluntary Industry Initiatives” will be held November 30, 2012 from noon to 2:00pm in Room 1300 of the Longworth House Office Building. Lunch with be served. Speakers will be announced soon. Questions should be directed to Ashley Creel at [email protected] Members of the press should contact Amy Smorodin at [email protected]
