A Consuming Experience

Blogging, internet, software, mobile, telecomms, gadgets, technology, media and digital rights from the perspective of a consumer / user, including reviews, rants and random thoughts. Aimed at intelligent non-geeks, who are all too often unnecessarily disenfranchised by excessive use of tech jargon, this blog aims to be informative and practical without being patronising. With guides, tutorials, tips - and the occasional ever so slightly naughty observation.

A PDF summary of a seminar "Should the term of copyright protection be extended or shortened in the uk?" makes interesting reading.

The seminar, organised jointly by the ippr (Institute for Public Policy Research), PCMLP (Programme for Comparative Media Law and Policy at Oxford University) and the RSA (Royal Society for the Encouragement of the Arts etc), included speakers such as Professor Lawrence Lessig of Creative Commons fame. I didn't hear about it in time to try to go - but I'd have liked to. The summary is pretty comprehensive though.

(Via the IPPR's "Intellectual Property and the Public Sphere" blog.)

By the way, if you're interested in Creative Commons (my own blog is licensed under a Creative Commons licence, see the bottom of the page), Prof. Lessig has recently started an introductory series about the history and future of Creative Commons on the Creative Commons blog, available in Spanish as well as English - well worth following. There's a Creative Commons UK site too.
