We will be joining the folks at CopyNight NYC to begin hacking 17 U.S.C. s. 109 (that’s the codification of the First Sale Doctrine for those who aren’t CR nerds). The party will start tomorrow night at Vig Bar in Manhattan at 7 PM (see the map below).
In the Internet convergence hard copies are harder to come by, and cloud servers replace sale for licensing. The issue is near and dear to us at BLIP – we strive to figure out how First Sale maintains relevance when iTunes is the primary seller of music, when Redbox loses to Netflix, and when the majority of software sales are for mobile devices, not desktops.
As usual, we’ll be using Docracy to post our branched final product(s). Hope we’ll see you there (virtually or in real life).
