BMI @ SXSW Gimme Shelter: Rights in the Cloud
As more products and services move to the proverbial cloud, from shared collaboration, commercial product offerings, and user-uploaded content, new business models are created while extant business models come under attack. This panel will explore the disruption caused by some new cloud-based services and how this disruption is affecting existing industries. For example, who is responsible for liabilities arising from the use or exploitation of content stored in the cloud; should Congress change the law to impose new liability/responsibilities on operators of cloud-based services; what rights, if any, do consumers have to perpetual access to their content in the cloud; can a user transfer their content in the cloud to another device or person?
These and other questions will be addressed by the distinguished panel:
Gary Greenstein Of Counsel Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
John Simson Attorney Lommen Abdo
Michael Robertson CEO MP3tunes
Michael Drexler Executive Director Broadcast Music Inc
