The University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries are sponsoring a forum for students covering a variety of issues related to the culture of sharing made possible by the technologies of the Internet. This event will engage students in answering questions of what is possible and what are their rights and responsibilities in the information world. Nelson Pavlosky from the national student organization Students for Free Culture will provide an overview of issues.
Following Nelson's keynote, discussions will follow on these topics:
Breakout Topics: (45 minutes)
- Remixes and mash-ups: YouTube, sampling and legal repurposing
- Peer-to-peer file sharing: what CAN you do?
- Sharing your work: including open access publishing options
- Open source: sharing programming solutions
- Digital rights management: DRM in CDs, DVDs, iTunes and more
A closing session facilitated by Gavin Baker, co-founder of Florida Free Culture, will offer participants a chance to share ideas from the discussions and develop a plan for further engagement and action on the UW-Madison campus.
