Whilst we were at Online Educa Berlin, we undertook a series of interviews and audio and video recordings. These are slowly trickling out of the post production department!
The first out is recording of a presentation by Derek Stephens and Neil Witt from the Jisc Users and innovation programme Web2Rights project.
Web2Rights is a JISC funded project, whose purpose is to develop a practical, pragmatic and relevant toolkits to support the projects funded within the JISC Users and Innovation Programme in their engagement with next generation and Web2.0 technologies and emerging legal issues, such as IP, libel and accessibility.
There are a number of ways in which these projects will engage with Web2.0 and the resources created here will be relevant for projects which are:
- Adapting and deployment of pre-existing tools, technologies and software
- Developing new tools, technologies and software
- Adapting and using own content
- Use of third party created content
However the outputs of the project will be relevant for many projects. the issues the Web2Rights project is looking at the challenges of Web 2.0 technologies, present for Intellectual Property (IP) Rights and other legal issues. These issues include:
- Do IP rights exist in a virtual world and, if so, who owns them?
- Who owns the rights in works that are a result of collective collaboration?
- What happens if you can’t find the rights holders?
- What are the legal risks associated with Web 2.0 engagement?
- How can risks associated with content reuse be sensibly managed?
We have posted two versions of the presentation. The first is an MP3 audio recording and the second an M4a Enhanced version (this includes slides and can be viewed on iTunes or an iPod).
