What is to be done about copyright? Should all publicly-funded art, research, and film be ‘rights-free’? Is Google's ‘world brain’ 1984 made flesh? Is the threat to freedom greater from ‘corporations monopolising information’ or ‘hordes of file-sharing hacker-anarchists’ – or are both these just fantasies that make it easier not to think hard about creativity, moral rights in one’s person, and the revolutionary potential of a digitally linked up world?

Panel discussion chaired by Roly Keating (Chief Executive of the British Library), Peter Bradwell (Open Rights Group), Paul Gerhardt (Archives for Creativity and Film and Sound Think Tank, JISC), John Archer (Hopscotch Films, Producer of History of Cinema) and Haidy Geismar (Anthropologist, UCL), Prof. Lilian Edwards (Professor of Internet Law, Strathclyde University & Deputy Director of The CREATe Centre).
