VIDEO: Copyright Enforcement (or not) in Social Media @theCSUSA #copyright

On January 22 2013 the Copyright Society of the USA NY Chapter presented: “Look Before You Tweet (or Post, or Pin): Copyright Enforcement (or not) in Social Media” at The Princeton Club in NYC. A panel of experts examined the copyright issues cropping up around social media sites like Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. For example, what are the implications for owner, poster and site for inclusion of copyrighted works on a social media site? When does it make business sense for a copyright owner to take action? How does a copyright owner or user go about creating policies and navigating various terms of service on an ever-growing number of social media sites? And how do these social media sites take licenses for and otherwise approach copyrighted contect posted on their sites? Panelists: Heidi Garfield – Corporate Counsel, Shutterstock, Inc.; Jeanne Hamburg – Partner, Norris McLaughlin & Marcus, P.A.; and Sacha Tarrant – Director of Digital Rights Strategy & Enforcement at NBA Properties, Inc. Moderator was Eleanor M. Lackman – Partner at Cowan DeBaets Abrahams & Sheppard LLP. Video/audio is below. No transcript.
