Break-out sessions are discussion-oriented workshops, which should provide a relatively open space for exchanging ideas, questions and information on past and future research projects.
Hybrid Economy: When is 'free' necessary and when is it 'sharecropping'?
In this breakout you will be asked to ponder this simple question: When does the market really need 'free' in a way which is consistent with the vision behind Creative Commons and not equivalent to sharecropping? We will try to identify such cases (real life examples would help), categorize and characterize them. The idea came out of a discussion with Lessig in Seoul a few months ago. It is a thought experiment. It may lead nowhere. If it does, that will be interesting in itself.
Moderator: Giorgos Cheliotis, National University of Singapore, Singapore
Free Culture Lawyers: Legal Frontiers
Lawyers and friends are invited to discuss legal matters that are near and dear to the hearts of Free Culture advocates and researchers. One such issue is that of license proliferation and incompatibilities across jurisdictions. Bring along your thoughts on this or suggest more topics on the spot.
Moderator: Melanie Dulong de Rosnay, National Center for Scientific Research, France
Social Science and Humanities approach to Free Culture
A chance for social scientists (very broadly defined) to mingle and discuss what a social scientist (or business scholar or humanist for that matter) can bring to bear on the major topics that are of concern to Free Culture.
Moderator: Jeanette Hofmann, Social Science Research Center Berlin, Germany
Computer Science and Free Culture
Computer scientists, engineers and technologists of all types, this is where we invite you to meet others with similar backgrounds and an interest in Free Culture, find out what they're working on, and discover common themes or propose new topics or projects.
Moderator: Sonja Buchegger, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden
