Open Video Conference - video & journalism, art, politics etc -– videos available

Communia reports on New York University Law School’s first Open Video Conference, which covered “a wide number of topics, from the nitty-gritty world of metadata interoperability, democratization and journalism, interests of commercial players, to novel ways of production and the role the ‘pirates’ are playing…on software, politics, journalism, art, education, industry, business, technology, culture, communication, freedom, and democracy.”

From the Open Video Conference site:

“Web video holds tremendous potential, but limits on broadband, playback technology, and fair use threaten to undermine the ability of individuals to engage in dialogues in and around this new media ecosystem.

Open Video is a broad-based movement of video creators, technologists, academics, filmmakers, entrepreneurs, activists, remixers, and many others…

Open Video is the growing movement for transparency, interoperability, and further decentralization in online video…

…Open Video is about the legal and social norms surrounding online video.”

Videos of conference sessions are now available (feed for future uploads of videos) and there are also various reports of the conference.
