Sessions: Abstract

Hands On the Internet

Michael Geist, University of Ottawa, Canada

While many Internet advocates have long supported a hands-off government and policy approach to the Internet, this talk will make the case for a hands-on approach, citing the role that the museum and archival communities should play in contentious issues such as digital copyright, network neutrality, and access to public domain works.
