Remix/Mashup 2009: The Future of Creative Production and Ownership
The Ohio State University’s Moritz College of Law and Wexner Center for the Arts have collaborated for a novel discussion on the implications of mashup and remix in the world of Web 2.0. Recent technological developments have created a wave of user-generated content in which pre-existing sounds and images are appropriated, reshaped, and shared with unprecedented ease. Bringing together new media artists, prominent academics, and influential members of the media community, this event will discuss ways in which the digitization of music, film, and visual art over the internet is influencing the future of these industries and the future of copyright law.
Organized as a combination of panels, roundtables, and performances, the event will engage presenters and audience members to think broadly about the legal, political, economic, and cultural landscapes accompanying mashup art and collaborative creation.
Selected papers and essays by participants will be published in a special issue of I/S: A Journal of Law and Policy for the Information Society, the law school's interdisciplinary journal that focuses on law and policy issues related to the ways in which digital information and communication technologies are transforming society.
