Another dispatch from Digital Capital Week...

Attended one more Digital Capital Week session today, "Can I Tweet That?," a discussion about user-generate content and the law. Three attorneys, two in person (moderator Kendell Kelly, mentioned in a previous post), and Andrew T. Mirsky, and another (David A. Wheeler) via teleconference, generously provided information and answered questions about various aspects of the law and how it affects online publishers/writers/commentors (this means you!). The session got into the nitty-gritty of the things that you say online that would be protected by copyright, and what would (or might) not, what constitutes fair use, etc.

All in all, another productive (and still free) event, one of many during this first annual Digital Capital Week.
