Copyright & Piracy in the Digital Age - Are we all criminals?
A subject which is close to many of our hearts and is a real highlight from the Writing on the Wall Festival, the issues of Copyright and Piracy are now ever present in todays society as most of the population own, have listened to or watched a pirated version of a TV programme, Movie or album. You can't use youtube without possibily violating someone elses copyright so we have all become criminals for mere consumption of material... well that can't be right. A proposed Government bill on Digital Copyright only saw the light of day for a week before being thrown into the long grass of politics.
This event can only help us to inderstand the issues behind this subject area so come along on the 3rd May.

A panel of three experts will present on their areas of specialism in audio and social media, be that marketing, journalism, writing, teaching or music. The forum will then be opened out to the floor for a more general discussion and Q&A session.
There is a lot going on in Liverpool this week and I'm abit late in checking out what's going on, in my case there is to much going on as I will get to as much as I'd like.
So lets Kick it off.
We finally see it - a year in the making but now Hack for Culture has a name it can't be sued over. It is set to set the world of arts data alight by bringing the glorious arts & cultural organisations of Liverpool together with Merseyside's Digital and Creative industries to explore and experiment with a wide variety of hidden cultural data sets.
"A data set (or dataset) is a collection of data, usually presented in tabular form. Each column represents a particular variable. Each row corresponds to a given member of the data set in question. It lists values for each of the variables, such as height and weight of an object. Each value is known as a datum. The data set may comprise data for one or more members, corresponding to the number of rows." Wikipedia - so probably wrong.
