Copynight Houston presents Grokster discussion/debate

Robert of Idiotprogrammer has organized a Grokster debate/discussion on behalf of Copynight Houston. The event will take place next Wednesday, July 27th from 7:00-8:30 PM. It is free to the public and is at Nexus Cafe, 2828 Rogerdale (a block away from Rogerdale and Westheimer, Second floor of Walden Internet Village Apartments). There is plenty of free wi-fi to go around in that place, I hear. I will be on the panel along with another attorney, Patrick Flanagan of Drop Trio fame, and Robert Nagle himself. I am looking forward to our discussion. Robert and I have thrown ideas back and forth on various copyright related topics; it will be interesting to do so with an audience! Debate topics will include:
1. Does current copyright law help or hurt artists?
2. Will technological innovation increase or decrease copyright infringement?
3. What is the impact of Grokster vs. MGM Supreme Court decision on publishers, web site owners and inventors?

Please come and bring your questions and comments. For more info, see Robert’s entry on the subject.

    Well, dang. This is the same night as Technology Bytes. Can’t be in 2 geek places at once. I really want to attend this, though. Arg.
