Speakers will address issues of copyright, plus “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”, including abnegation of due process, “three strikes and you are out”, site blocking and EU issues, net censorship and so on in what is anticipated to be a very lively discussion. Lilian Edwards, currently speaking on the Bill at events across the UK, is also known for her blog Pangloss. Simon Frith is known for his ESRC Research Programme on Media Economics and Media Culture.
