Taking on the Take-Down Notice: Copyright, Youth and Educators in Harmony
The LAMP's launch of the Media Breaker, a free online video editor for remixing third-party content, opens doors for creative uses of video remix and media to engage students and modernize education. It also calls attention to the lack of awareness among educators and students about their rights under the fair use, which allows the reuse and modification of copyrighted materials. But how far do fair use protections go? What do media-savvy students and teachers need to know? What is the role of fair use in a 21st-century classroom?
These questions and more will be explored at "Taking on the Take-Down Notice: Copyright, Youth and Educators in Harmony." Featuring a panel of New York students in high school, college and graduate school, plus a panel of leading experts in the fields of intellectual property law, education and digital rights, this event will tackle some of the largest questions around how media can--and must--be part of the future of education.
The event will begin with a brief panel of students, moderated by NYU Law professor Christopher Sprigman, followed by a demonstration of the Media Breaker. The expert panel will follow, moderated by The LAMP's co-founder and Education Director, Dr. Katherine Fry. Panelists will include:
-- Christopher Bavitz, Managing Director, Harvard Law School's Cyberlaw Clinic based at the Berkman Center
-- Jeanne Fromer, Professor of Law at NYU School of Law focusing on copyright, intellectual property and patent law
-- Elisa Kreisinger, Digital Artist, Fair Use Rights Activist and Artist-in-Residence at Eyebeam Art+Technology Center
-- Jill Lesser, Executive Director, Center for Copyright Information
-- Gigi Sohn, President and CEO of digital rights advocacy group Public Knowledge
A reception will follow.
This event is sponsored by the New York University School of Law's Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy, and is in partnership with Mozilla Hive NYC Learning Network.
$10 suggested donation will go towards The LAMP.
