PEER STREAMING AND METADATA FILING: NEW TRENDS IN ONLINE MUSIC DISSEMINATION
The definition and boundaries of cultural piracy grows murkier by the year. Peer-to-peer streaming, file-sharing, cloud storage, and wiki-oriented open databases assembled collectively - these methods of cultural interaction have become the normal way of sharing knowledge and art forms. If an entire society deems certain tools and principles as the most effective avenues for communication, then can these networks still be considered piracy?
This panel of communications-industry professionals converges to explore the many questions underlying our new digital communities and the legalities that hold them back, in order to assess if our notion of piracy has grown redundant.
