Digital Social Memory: Ethics, Privacy, and Representation in Digital Preservation
February 4, 2017
Fair Use, Publicity, and Privacy
Social media archives often reuse copyrighted material in order to support the efforts of journalists and scholars. At the same time, this kind of fair use may violate the privacy or contextual integrity of individual users’ posts. Chaired by Rhizome’s Artistic Director Michael Connor, this panel explores the tension between public and private information with participants including Jack Cushman, attorney, programmer, and a developer of Perma.cc; Bruce Goldner, Partner at Skadden and co-head of its Intellectual Property and Technology Group; and Amanda Levendowski, a teaching fellow with NYU’s Technology Law and Policy Clinic.
