About the Event:
The "free" Internet era has powerfully impacted intellectual property and the ability of artists to monetize their ventures. But while some of the implications of diminishing copyright value, content piracy and aggregation are disturbing, "free" also offers new opportunities for creative people to generate revenue and increase their industry visibility.
On Monday, August 23 at the Media Education Foundation, join Jon Reed, author of Free From Corporate America, for a facilitated, interactive discussion on "making the most of free." We'll talk about some of the obstacles to monetizing and protecting copyright and share our successes with creating a competitive advantage through kickass content and/or "freemium" business models.
Some of the topics from this discussion will be inspired by Chris Anderson's Free: The Future of a Radical Price.
This discussion is a donations-optional fundraiser, with donations planned to be made to the Innocence Project, http://innocenceproje...
