Crisis in Copyright Policy

Crisis in Copyright Policy

Crisis in Copyright Policy: How the digital monopolies have cornered culture and what it means for all of us.

With Jonathan Taplin, University of Southern California and author of Move Fast and Break Things
Chaired by Professor Sir Robin Jacob

Jonathan Taplin is Director Emeritus of the Annenburg Innovation Lab at the University of Southern California. His areas of specialization are in international communication management and digital media entertainment.

Taplin began his entertainment career in 1969 as Tour Manager for Bob Dylan and The Band. In 1973 he produced Martin Scorsese’s first feature film, Mean Streets, which was selected for the Cannes Film Festival. Between 1974 and 1996, Taplin produced 26 hours of television documentaries (including The Prize and Cadillac Desert for PBS) and 12 feature films including The Last Waltz, Until The End of the World, Under Fire and To Die For. His films were nominated for Oscar and Golden Globe awards and chosen for The Cannes Film Festival five times.

Later as an investment advisor to Merrill Lynch, Taplin worked on the successful attempt to save Walt Disney Studios from a corporate raid and helped re-engineer the media landscape via transactions such as the leveraged buyout of Viacom.  Taplin’s pioneering video-on-demand service, Intertainer, which he co-founded in 1996, offered licensed video content from the studios for both cable and broadband in the early stages of the internet.  He and his partners also invented interactive tools for ads on the internet alongside their service, only to see their ground-breaking venture trounced by a j-v between Sony, Universal Studios, MGM and Paramount.  Mr. Taplin was appointed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to the California Broadband Task Force in January of 2007 and was named one of the 50 most social media savvy professors in America by Online College as well as one of the 100 American Digerati by Deloitte’s Edge Institute.

In his new book “Move Fast and Break Things” Taplin offers a succinct and powerful account of how our online lives have come at a heavy price.  Unprecedented growth in the value of all-powerful companies has been characterised by a massive reallocation of revenue from creators and right owners to these online platforms.  This shift has, he argues, been accompanied by opaque business practices and the subordination of the privacy of individuals.

In Oxford last year, the University of Glasgow’s CREATe reported to IP academics that there are scarcely any studies on the impact of digital distribution upon the authors and performers. Yet valuable industries and important social and cultural policy rest upon the continued ability of the talent to work at what they are best at. So far we have only anecdotal evidence of the destructive impact of this unforgiving digital landscape upon the livelihoods of the talent.  Jonathan Taplin’s time in the trenches means he can deliver a better informed perspective than most upon what is not just a cultural war but an economic one as well.

Blockchain in Construction – Open Innovation Workshop
Oct
19
1:00 PM13:00

Blockchain in Construction – Open Innovation Workshop

Details: Blockchains in Construction – Open Innovation Workshop

Digital Construction Week - ExCel Centre, Royal Victoria Dock, 1 Western Gateway, London E16 1XL. Inflatable Dome - "BIM Cliniques"

Speaker: Abel Maciel, Jakub Wachocki, Franco Pittoni, Alain Waha, Christopher Newman, Evans Duncan, Brown Maggie, Gibbs, David-John, Ari Issacs

Abstract

As Blockchain technology becomes more widely known and understood, other processes will naturally get disrupted and built by default on Blockchains as it internet technologies can be merged with Blockchain technologies.
Which construction processes should be moved to Blockchains first is the initial challenge. Join this open-Innovation workshop to identify what should be disrupted first and take action in the following up activities and projects.

Participation is free, but it is limited to a maximum of 25 participants, to ensure the discussion is action focused, and everybody has a chance to collaborate fully.
For this reason, we will be preselecting the participants based on their passion and willingness to achieve change and make an impact.
If you are one of them please< REGISTER INTEREST >

The Programme is organised by the Process Innovation Forum in partnership with the Digital Construction Week, IET, COMIT, UK BIM Alliance, Innovate UK/KTN and i3p. 1st Round of the Co-Creation Programme is being held across the UK, Spain and Singapore. It is set to explore the most relevant opportunities and the blockers for the digital transformation of the AECO industry.

CBC Talks - Algorithms &amp; the Law

CBC Talks - Algorithms & the Law

Details: Room 3.21, Old Building, LSE, London

Speaker: Jeremy Barnett (Resilience Partners Limited and Construction Blockchain Consortium). Joint work with Adriano Soares Koshiyama and Philip Treleaven.

Abstract

The BARAC project defines feasibility guidelines to policy makers,
industry and regulators by identifying problems and associated
solutions with a bottom up approach, built through case studies
and proof of concept platforms.

In Law a company is treated as having the rights and obligations of a person. In this era of Artificial Intelligence (intelligent assistants, ‘Robo’-advisors, robots, and autonomous vehicles) ‘algorithms’ are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is considered by virtue of statute to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasing require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and most importantly status in law.

For example, already in financial services Regulators require firms to demonstrate that trading algorithms have been thoroughly tested, demonstrate ‘best execution’ and are not engaged in market manipulation. Other interesting cases are healthcare algorithms; medical-assistant’ Chatbots and patient screening systems which will increasingly dispense medical advice and treatments to patients. Regulators, who have traditionally regulated firms and individuals, are raising the status of ‘algorithms’ to ‘persons’.

This paper discusses the emergence of ‘Algorithms as artificial persons’, with the need to formally verify, certify and regulate algorithms. Its aim is to start discussion in the Legal profession regarding the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. This paper is written with the expectation that the reader is familiar with ‘Law’ but has a limited knowledge of algorithm technologies.

Jeremy Barnett is a practising Barrister, Recorder and director of Resilience Partners Limited. He is a Director of the Construction Blockchain Consortium (CBC) at UCL and has conducted research into algorithmic dispute resolution and the law of algorithms over a number of years. For 5 years he was the visiting professor of Law Informatics at Leeds University where he lead the Court 21 project, a research group in virtual courts.

CBC Workshop 2 - Smart Contracts

CBC Workshop 2: Smart Contracts

Centre of Construction Law & Dispute Resolution

King's College London

The Dickson Poon School of Law,

Somerset House East Wing

Strand, LONDON, WC2R 2LS

06 October 2017 - 14:00 -17:30

Smart Contracts are automated computer protocols intended to facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract. They are becoming increasingly sophisticated with the advent of blockchain cryptocurrency tools like Bitcoin Script, Ethereum Solidity and others.

As one of the leading research establishments in the field, the Centre of Construction Law & Dispute Resolution, Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London will be discussing the complexities of the emerging field of Smart Contracts and its interfaces with Artificial Intelligence (AI), Building Information Modelling (BIM) and the challenges posed by the construction industry and its legal framework.
