Reminder: Next Week Techdirt's Greenhouse Salon: The Battle For Copyright Reform

from the join-us dept

As we recently announced, on Monday, we'll be hosting the first in a new series of events we're running, called the Techdirt Greenhouse Salons. The first one is on The Battle For Copyright Reform, and will take place Monday evening in San Francisco (thanks to Automattic and Pinterest for sponsoring/hosting the event). You can request an invite at that page. The event will involve some very brief presentations upfront, but the main event will be the specific discussions among attendees about the upcoming fights for copyright reform (both good and bad) around the globe. If you would like to attend, please fill out the form requesting an invite (though, don't do what one person did and just use the form to rant about how evil we all were for destroying the music industry, without leaving a name or any other such info). It'll be a fun and enlightening event, so let us know if you'd like to join. We've also received tons of feedback from folks interested in future such Greenhouse Salons, so stay tuned...

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Excellent. Will the event be live-streamed, torrented, podcasted, or anything similar?

      Since much of it is conversational in small groups, there's no good way to live stream or record the whole thing. We will, however, do *something* to get the ideas that were discussed out into the wider world and continue the discussion online.

    Please consider livestreaming the event with people responding to stream chat so people who can't attend because they don't live in the U.S. (hint hint) or Bay area can attend virtually and affect the discussion.

    "how evil we all were for destroying the music industry"

    Ah, when I was young, recordings couldn't be copied at all. There waren't no music industry in those days, at all. Why, you could see label promoters and recording studio executives starving in the gutters--honest people wouldn't let them onto the streets back then, noways. My granny would always whack them with a rolling pin and say, "Why don't you do something honest with your life, like push heroin or pimp used life-insurance policies?" It was even worse for copyright lawyers: honest towns offered a bounty for their hearts or gall bladders. (I never hearn tell of anyone collecting bounty on a heart.)

    Oh, people talked about music: Bach and Vivaldi and such like, but I hear them folk waren't writing music any more anyway. And before you played their music, you had to read and stuff. (Granny didn't hold with that kind of nonsense.)
