Can You Tweet That? Social Media and the Law - +Dara Quackenbush #sxswi #sxnotes <-- notes from SXSW sessions

Tests of libel: defamation, publication, identification, negligence, damages
Defense of libel: truth, privilege, fair comment and criticism
- Organization & companies are considered public persons when it comes to media law
- In general as an employee or freelancer the company you work for owns the copyright to what you write during employment, find out about your company/contract
- Copyright protects individual work for life plus 70 years, corporation 95 years.
- Someone still owns the rights to "Happy Birthday" song - this is why the big chain restaurants, generally have their own version
- Fair use: you can quote from a copyrighted article but the quote must be brief relative to the length of the total work.
- If copyrighted material is used for commercial purposes permission is required. There is no fair use.
- the topic of @Pinterest comes up - copy/pasting entire posts into Pinterest is against copyright, linking to or quoting is okay. How much you can take is relative to the entire length of the article - by definition is needs to be brief.

SoLoMo Redefined: Next Gen Social Local Mobile #SXnotes
(speakers: +Chris Messina , +Matt Galligan , +Scott Kveton , +Jeff Rohrs )

- "My mobile. Is my extension of my personality. It tells me where I need to be, what i want to do, who I want to see. It's my second brain" - Matt Galligan
- "I think we are in an era of confusion, bc we are coming out a time that was defined by file types.
- What hasn't happened yet, is thinking about what group or ad hoc computing will be like, when the device is no longer the focus.
- I think the concept of privacy is going to go away. It's just happening anyway from the nature of devices.
- Touch-computing is much more personal, it's responding to you, creating a relationship, in the future that relationship will be more personalized
- There is a constant question about permission for customizations, on the other hand, devices are able to elevate the experience by getting the user's vantage point through that same personalization
- The pace of technology is quickly out-growing the speed in which laws can be created about it. Apps accessing address book, devices sharing photos without specific prompt
- We are seeing second generation of apps outside of "we need an app, so we can have an app"
- Privacy is in a negotiated state among an individual and their piers, the rules are still unclear about a friend's permission to share their friend's information.
