  • It's all about money! In this brave system you can do everything you want, as long as the governments get their profits & benefits! The era of independance close up... the era of total control is arrived!...

The Future of Content

  1. The Future of ContentJess Nichols<br />
  2. @smcsyd<br />@utsengage<br />I attended SMCSYD and UTSpeaks events this week around copyright content management. These are my thoughts around the future of online content.<br />
  3. Today everyone wants free and easily accessible content. <br />Flickr: JeremyBrooks<br />
  4. The internet is a perfect platform for users to consume all the they want for free.<br />Flickr: aperture_lag<br />
  5. This consumption method is flawed because not all content is really free.<br />Flickr: MisterSnappy<br />
  6. Someone has generated the content with their own time, materials and resources.<br />Flickr: AdamCohn<br />
  7. This is why we have copyright.<br />Flickr: Horiavarlan<br />
  8. Copyright protects the rights of the original creator of content to allow them to choose how their content is distributed and reused.<br />Flickr: Robsv<br />
  9. But the current copyright system isn't protecting the original creators as content can be downloaded in a single click without permission.<br />Flickr: Kakafonie<br />
  10. At UTSpeaks, Michael Fraser suggested the development of a National Content Network (NCN).<br />
  11. The NCN would collate all content accessible in Australia (i.e. world wide content that is consumed in Australia)<br />Flickr: lorises<br />
  12. It is a link library of all available content.<br />Flickr: Cpchen<br />
  13. Which would be managed by the government.<br />Flickr: cas_ks<br />
  14. There are so many reasons why an NCN isn't the right solution.<br />Flickr: CJDaniel<br />
  15. The Government’s plans for Censorship.<br />Flickr: 1000photosofnewyorkcity<br />
  16. It will be extremely hard to hold all content available.<br />Flickr: vshioshvili<br />
  17. There is a high resourcing cost to ensure regulations are upheld.<br />Flickr: jurvetson<br />
  18. And Users will not engage with a process that prevents them from easily accessing and consuming content.<br />Flickr: drh<br />
  19. A possible solution to this is increasing the presence of Creative Commons.<br />Flickr: giuli-o<br />
  20. Instead of people registering and restricting access to content, users identify rules around how their content is allowed to be used.<br />Flickr: taminator<br />
  21. Not using a static, one-stop-shop library allows for scalability and flexibility of the system.<br />Flickr: gorbould<br />
  22. It means the government won't own or control content.<br />Flickr: dazzied<br />
  23. Not everyone wants to make a profit from all their work,<br />Flickr: mindfulone<br />
  24. Some people want to share and collaborate to innovate and generate new content.<br />Flickr: wwworks<br />
  25. (read me)<br />There is a growing free culture.<br />Flickr: zone41<br /><br />
  26. And shutting off or restricting content will do more harm than good.<br />Flickr: criminalintent<br />
  27. However there will always be a need for copyright.<br />Flickr: horiavarlan<br />
  28. And there will never be one single solution to solve all content management problems.<br />Flickr: mikedefiant<br />
  29. But for a successful future in content management<br />Flickr: melindashelton<br />
  30. The responsibility lies with people<br />Flickr: anirudhkoul<br />
  31. And their willingness to be open and collaborative with their content.<br />Flickr: andrew_mc_d<br />
