i-DAT/Submerge would like to invite you to EXPLOITING POTENTIAL, a free
symposium on intellectual property and digital production, taking place
1st July 2005, 10am – 4pm, at Submerge, L Shed, Industrial Museum,
BS1 4RN, UK.
Issues around intellectual property are a key concern for digital
and designers. They reveal a range of tensions between the idealism of
entering the public domain and the pragmatics of making a living. On
hand, there is the principle that creativity and innovation thrives
sharing of ideas and material, and on the other, that laws are
protect individual and collective interests.
This informal symposium aims to examine these ideas and to challenge
existing structures and practices for those working at the
commerce, research and independent production.
Presentations by Prodromos Tsiavos (Creative Commons), Margaret Briffa
(Own-it), Ian ‘Cutswift’ Edgar (Eclectic Method), Hugo de Rijke (i-DAT),
George Grinsted, Chris O'Shea, Dominica Williamson, Grzesiek Sedek,
James, Ulrike Brückner & Sabine Meyer.
