Upcoming webinar on copyright infringement

Hi everyone, in the light of the recent SOPA/PIPA strikes and the Megaupload case, our next IG webinar will be on copyright infringement. Information below, and here

[Webinar] Copyright infringement: from SOPA/PIPA to Megaupload

Dubbed the largest online protest in history, the SOPA/PIPA Strike managed to bring many websites to a halt as organisations worldwide showed their support in the protest against the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect Intellectual Property Act. Both bills were shelved, but the shutting down of file-sharing website Megaupload prompted fresh debates on peer-to-peer sharing and copyright infringement.

Join us on Tuesday 31st January, at 14:00 GMT, for our end-of-month IG webinar, hosted by Dr Jovan Kurbalija. We will be discussing:

  • The US has shelved both SOPA and PIPA bills. Is the battle over?
  • What is an impact of the national legal and policy decisions on the global Internet (SOPA, Megaupload)?
  • No implementation without representation: Is the SOPA strike a harbinger of the new way of political organising and addressing legitimacy deficit in modern politics?
