Suits brought against members of University by the RIAA bring up issues revolving around the role and identity of University and copyright. Universities are being asked to absorb financial and non-monetary costs of the record companies' enforcement. Is this enforcement also compromising student privacy? Does this limit access to genuine educational resources? How do we provide opportunities for new creative expression through digital mediums?

Facilitator: Wendy Seltzer (Berkman Fellow), Doc Searls (Berkman Fellow), Lewis Hyde (Berkman Fellow)
