Once the nearly exclusive purview of lawyers and librarians, questions of copyrights, freedom of information, and open source programming now reach into the lives of everyone. From the knock-off Prada bag, to the distribution of music, to questions of privacy that could impact national security–all of these issues and more come to the fore with currently available technologies. Previously accepted precepts and practices are being challenged from all sides. Moderated by students from the blog Wesleying.org, this panel of Wesleyan faculty and students will explore these engaging issues with audience participation invited. Panelists are Max Dietz ’16, Assistant Professor of Sociology Greg Goldberg, Dean of Social Sciences Joyce Jacobsen, Isabella Litke ’12 (Ph.D. Candidate at Princeton University) and Music Librarian and Archivist Alec McLane.
