Copyright. The Elephant in the Room?

I’ve long grown accustomed to the principles behind Creative Commons copyright. Sharing is encouraged within boundaries defined by the creator. However, traditional “rights restricted” copyright law still governs most of the world.

Pina D’Agostino, Director of the Intellectual Property Law and Technology Program at the Osgoode Law School, provided an overview at the Managing Social Media conferenceof the key copyright issues for social media applications and the need for guidelines and policies to ensure that intellectual property rights are respected.

I’m capturing the highlights of the session from the Twitter stream using the #CdnInst hashtag and posting them here using CoverItLive.
