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.
The Writing on the Wall festival launches at the beginning of next month and once more they are promising a mix of idelogically challenging content with a daring difference. The programme is linked below take a look and tell us if you agree.
Derek Hatton (Degsy) to appear at Liverpool’s Writing on the Wall Festival on Saturday 14th May
Derek’s back and he’s sure to provoke a debate! Derek became the face of 1980’s militancy as one of the ‘47’ councillors who took on Thatcher in 1984 and put himself on the line when surcharged and banned from office by the House of Lords.
