Upcoming User-Generated Content Audio Conference

On March 29, 2007, I'll be one of the speakers for this webaudio conference relating to User-Generated Media issues, offered by Pike & Fisher. Here are the details:

The New, New Media Revolution:
User Generated Content

An interactive audio event

March 29th, 2007 - 2:00-3:30 p.m. ET

2006 marked the rapid emergence of a series of new product offerings that radically altered the landscape of content on the Internet. User Generated Content or "UGC" exploded on the scene along with the proliferation of new tools and sites that greatly facilitated collaboration, publication, and distribution by and among individuals. Coupled with widespread adoption and use of social networking sites, the year culminated with the acquisition of YouTube by Google for 1.6 billion dollars. With these new developments come new challenges.

The expansion and adoption of new tools and platforms for creating and delivering content raised the specter of on-going and new litigation among and between rights holders and users. At the same time, given industry's collective experience, UGC presents new challenges involving issues such as intellectual property, privacy, defamation, consumer protection, negligence, and contract formation that result from the emergence of entirely new types of media and users.

Join Pike & Fischer's panel of experts as they introduce some of the legal issues and challenges related to UGC and prepare you for the new media landscape of 2007.

What will be covered:

  • Identify key intellectual property considerations relating to UGC including vicarious and contributory infringement risks
  • Understand the implications of the Communications Decency Act and Digital Millennium Copyright Act for User Generated Content
  • Recognize complications and developments related to terms of use and contract formation
  • Appreciate Third Party Rights in intellectual property and other rights and strategies to address these issues
    Spot special consumer protection and negligence challenges especially as they relate to kids
  • MODERATOR - Gerard M. Stegmaier, Attorney - Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
