                Open source has been accused of being anti-capitalist, the saviour of government, and a way of breaking vendor lock-in and saving money in a down economy. This panel discussion involving senior leaders from open source organizations will explore these themes and provide valuable insights. Open source is often touted as inclusive and meritocratic thus one might expect it to be more inclusive of women and minorities. In response to a great question from Greg Wilson in the audience about why ratios of men:women in open source are *worse* than in corporate projects, we had a great discussion of why that might be. We'll revisit this important issue in the future. Panelists included: * Ingres CEO - Roger Burkhardt * Mozilla Executive Director - Mark Surman * Eclipse Executive Director - Mike Milinkovich * IBM Software Developer - Lawrence Mandel * i365, A Seagate Company Software Developer - Austin Ziegler * Redhat, Solutions Architect - Andrew Jennings The panel was chaired by Andrew Ross

                      The digitization of content has impacted the entertainment industry in positive and negative ways. On one hand, technology makes it easier to identify works and their authorship — an important first step towards extracting value. Several organizations are currently attempting to aggregate this data into comprehensive databases. The collection of this data has the potential to facilitate licensing by providing identification and contact information for recording artists, songwriters, record companies and music publishers. Will the creation of these databases foster new growth in the music industry? Should there be a single master collection of information for recordings and songs? Is there a place for government action in this process and how can stakeholders work across national borders to realize a global solution? Join us for a lively discussion concerning metadata and the quest for an International Music Database. Eric Baptiste, CEO, SOCAN Jonathan Bender, COO, SoundExchange Fred Beteille, SVP of Operations and Technology, Rightsflow Jim Griffin, Managing Director, OneHouse Mark Isherwood, Director, Rightscom Limited Walter McDonough, Co-founder and General Counsel, Future of Music Coalition (moderator) This panel discussion was recorded live at Georgetown University in Washington, DC during Future of Music Policy Summit 2011 on October 4, 2011.
