Chat Room: Ownership And Property says
Chat Room is a in-person forum of presentations, videos, and discussion on how the internet has changed art, with a new focus each edition. Presenters are invited to speak on whatever they wish.

Join us for the latest installment, on “Ownership and Property”, where we will get into the access to and control of both material and immaterial resources, art law, Creative Commons, cultural appropriation, and much more.
