Copyright Utopia:
Alternative Visions, Methods & Policies
May 21-23, 2007
UMUC Inn & Conference Center, Adelphi, Maryland

Ordinary people around the world are revolutionizing the way media is
produced and distributed. Sites like YouTube, MySpace, Facebook, Flickr,
BitTorrent, Wikipedia and Google are completely altering how the masses
interact with video, pictures, art, music, and literature. Colleges and
universities desire to harness the power of these incredible tools for
distributing scholarship and creative works. But does U.S. copyright law
accommodate many of these uses?

Please join the Center for Intellectual Property as we discuss these
issues with scholars and practitioners about how students, faculty and
the general public can continue to innovate within the U.S. Copyright
regime. Each panel and speaker will address some aspect of how or
whether copyright law can be adapted or developed to accommodate the
massive changes that technological innovation brings.
