Your content, their profits

How online copyright theft threatens culture and creativity

 

The Internet has made online content astonishingly abundant. Digital music, video, photographs, articles and blogs are ubiquitous. Content, in particular video content, increasingly dominates the worldwide web. But what is to be done to solve the online epidemic of theft-based businesses – an epidemic that, in many ways, undermines both our creative culture and our economy?

 

In the framework of the current debate about whether or not there is a need to update EU copyright law, ICOMP organises a lunch debate to present its forthcoming IP White paper, written by Andrew Keen, and to discuss online copyright protection and sustainable business models in the digital age.
