The Elephant in the Room: Copyright Infringement
"The Internet is NOT about closed environments, but the elephant in the room is copyright infringement," said Steven Starr, founder of Revver, at a recent Digital Hollywood conference. Should it surprise us that Starr hit on the subject of copyright infringement? Anyway, I found this weird blog that has one page of notes from the fourth day of the event..
What makes this event so unusual is that it was attended by all of these founders, presidents and SVPs of video startups... as well as Keith Richman, CEO, Break.com. Now I know NOTHING about Keith Richman. I haven't even Googled him yet. But based on my time on his site, I just have this image of him sitting in the back of the room in a tight t-shirt and jeans, chuckling and holding a dirty martini. He signals to the founder of IDoNothingAllDay.com, and they both head down to the hotel bar to avoid the last speaker of the day.
