Video: Television and Disruptive Technologies: Copyright’s New Frontier @theCSUSA #copyright #television
On December 11, 2012 the Copyright Society of the USA NY Chapter presented: Television and Disruptive Technologies: Copyright’s New Frontier at The Princeton Club in NYC. A panel of experts discussed the current state of play for copyright in the TV space, what the future holds and how the copyright laws are likely to evolve as courts balance competing interests of the relevant stakeholders. Moderator Matthew Syrkin, of Hughes Hubbard & Reed, kicked the event off by presenting a short overview. Panelists were Dan Schnapp, of Hughes Hubbard & Reed; Richard Lehv, of Fross Zelnick Lehrman & Zissu; and Sandra Aistars, of the Copyright Alliance. Video is below. Sorry no captions / transcript, but there are slides.

The television industry is moving in on the music industry as copyright’s new frontier thanks to a slew of internet-based, TV-focused services and technologies primed to disrupt the traditional TV ecosystem. Aided by the emergence of cloud-based storage and transmission technologies and dynamic, interactive advertising mechanisms, these technologies are transforming the traditional norms for TV delivery, consumption and advertising models – and raising new issues about the application of the copyright laws that traditionally secured the space.
A number of TV-based services and technologies have already been the subject of litigation, but technology companies are continuing to develop new and different offerings driven by the connected TV or “Smart TV” platform – such as automatic content recognition, second screen experiences, interactive ad placement/serving and TV apps. These developments present new opportunities for content creators, technology providers, advertisers and other relevant stakeholders alike, but still raise fundamental copyright questions about control over the medium and the content that drives the platform’s success.
On January 17 2013 the New York Technology Council kicks off their 2013 program with a compelling event – Benefits of Cloud for Video and Image that will explore the “Pros, cons, and risks of cloud for high-quality video and images”. This topic is likely to be a bit of an eye-opener as to the kind of thing NYC’s media professionals could do with the affordable gigabit or similar bandwidth available elsewhere, if and when it arrives here…
Recognizing the interest to our members, NYTECH has kindly once again offered to discount their regular $20 event fee for ISOC-NYers who wish to attend. Register via our meetup page.

Law professor Michael Geist appeared before the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage as its first witness on a new study on Canada and New Media. His opening remarks are here, but the subsequent 90 minute discussion is much more interesting as it covered a wide range of issues from copyright to the iPod levy to networks to the digitization in Canada.
