Media Law in the Digital Age Conference Presented by Center for Sustainable Journalism and Berkman Center


I had the good fortune this past weekend to attend, and participate as a panelist at,  the Media Law in the Digital Age conference at Kennesaw State University.  The conference was jointly organized by KSU’s Center for Sustainable Journalism and Harvard Law School’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society.  The full-day event was truly impressive in the range of material covered around media law and the evolving models for journalism and media in light of digital technologies. 

Among the topics addressed were “Libel and Privacy: Minimizing the Risks of Publishing Online, “Copyright: Using the Works of Others and Licensing Your Own Work,” “Safe Harbors: Managing Online Communities” and “Starting an Independent News Organization.”   A full program agenda and other details may be found here: http://csjconferences.org/medialaw/.    The diverse mix of attendees — about a third each being from the media, academia and the legal profession, with a few business and governmental  organizations also represented — provided energizing  and lively discussions at each of the sessions.  Hats off to the high caliber of the program and the outstanding effort undertaken by the Center for Sustainable Journalism and the Berkman Center to put this together.
