SOPA and Protect IP in Context
600 Years of History
David e. Bell


It's going to be a wild ride from the origins of copyright law to the modern day. This talk will examine the basic tension between the free expressions of ideas and the need to make a living while expressing. And it will conclude by covering some specifics about SOPA and Protect-IP, how they effect you and what you can do as an individual.

David e. Bell - A photographer, visual story teller, and engineer with over 30 years of experience. His experience includes the development of specialized HDR and panoramic techniques, visual effects workflow, and various production roles in film and television. Currently he is working with his son Shane of the scanning, restoration, and completion of an unfinished film shot on 16mm film. As always interested in that space where technical and artistic challenges overlap.
