World Copyright Summit
9-10 June 2009, Ronald Reagan Center, Washington DC, USA
Discussion: Digital Mayhem or Salvation:
Can Rights-Owners and Content users Find a New Way to Move Forward?
All creative industries -- music, film, TV, books and visual arts -- are re-writing the rulebooks as their works are accessed and disseminated on the internet. What are their options? What can they learn from each other's experiences so far? Can they follow in the footsteps of the book industry and its groundbreaking deal made with Google at the end of 2008? Is the Google/book publishers/authors agreement the template for the future?
