The move to cloud computing is one of the defining technology trends of the early 21st century. By decoupling the concepts of location and information access, the cloud is upending traditional assumptions regarding media creation, dissemination, and consumption.
While this creates many new opportunities, it also raises challenges for business models and international trade frameworks that evolved in the pre-cloud era. A panel of industry, legal, and public policy leaders will discuss how to structure the global trade in digital works to enhance the public’s access to digital media while still respecting the rights of copyright holders.
Questions will include:
- What steps can help reduce the level of media piracy?
- Do barriers (legal or otherwise) act as a brake on the implementation and use of new media technologies?
Participating organizations: Google; Microsoft; Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.
