The Citizen Media Law Project at Harvard's Berkman Center has put together a not-to-be-missed day-long symposium, Journalism's Digital Transition: Unique Legal Challenges and Opportunities. The April 9 program features a stellar array of speakers and panelists that includes leading lawyers, journalists and academics. They will cover such topics as anonymity, defamation and privacy; copyright fair use and news aggregation; and law and ethics in a changing media ecosystem.
If you register today, the cost of the conference is $225. After today, it goes up to $275. The price includes course materials and lunch. The seminar marks the CMLP's recent launch of the Online Media Legal Network.
Regrettably, I will miss this not-to-be-missed program, because I am scheduled to speak at a University of Connecticut School of Law program on how technology is changing the practice of law.
