Aspen Institute Forum of Communications and Society Report. ByRichard P. Adler, Drew Clark and KathleenWallman, Rapporteurs.
Media and Values: Issues of Content, Community and Intellectual Property is a report of the 2007 Aspen Institute Forum on Communications and Society (FOCAS). It suggests how changing media affect the ability of communities to govern themselves, and people’s concepts of property for non-physical goods. It includes a set of principles for copyright “fair use” and contains a number of other policy recommendations. FOCAS 2008 “Media and Democracy” will explore how new media environments will serve citizens in a democracy. We invite you to attend to observe and interact with participants from two consecutive roundtables: “Media & Elections” and “Media & Engagement.” Visit www.aspeninstitute.org/focas for fees and registration information.
