About the Speech:

The internet allows users to create, distribute and consume cultural content more readily than ever before. Mr. Levine discussed how media and technology companies have adapted to this new environment and, in particular, how existing copyright provisions are directly affecting journalists, film-makers and musicians.

Discussion on copyright and the digital economy is particularly timely in the EU context. Updating the EU’s Copyright Framework was one of the seven digital priorities announced by Vice-President of the European Commission, Neelie Kroes in December 2012.

About the Speaker:

Robert Levine is the author of Free Ride, which the New York Times Book Review called “a book that should change the debate about the future of culture.” The book, his first, was also praised by BusinessweekFortune, and the Financial Times. He has been the executive editor of Billboard and a features editor at Wired and New York, and he has contributed to Vanity FairRolling Stone, and the New York Times. He covers the culture business from New York and Berlin.
