FRIDAY Hill Seminar: Intellectual Property
Content, Tech & Telecom Experts Search for Middle Ground

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Is there a ‘middle ground’ in the conflict over how best to protect intellectual property (music, movies, games, etc.) in the digital age? Top experts from the content, technology and telecommunications industries will explore that question – and maybe even answer it – at this Friday’s Congressional Seminar sponsored by The Progress & Freedom Foundation, “Can’t We Just All Get Along: The Content, Tech & Telecom Industries Examine Intellectual Property.”

The March 14 event will be held in the Longworth House Office Building, Room 1539, from Noon until 2:00 p.m. Panelists include Jeffrey Campbell, director of technology and communications policy for Cisco Systems; Sarah B. Deutsch, VP and associate general counsel at Verizon; and Mitch Glazer, SVP for governmental affairs with the Recording Industry Association of America. The moderator is James V. DeLong senior fellow and director of The Progress & Freedom Foundation’s Center for the Study of Digital Property.

Those interested in attending the Congressional Seminar should register by contacting Stefannie Bernstein at 202-289-8928 or sbernstein@pff.org. Members of the media should contact David Fish at the same number or dfish@pff.org.

This is the second in this year’s series of PFF Congressional Seminars. Featuring experts from different sectors and viewpoints, they are intended to educate members of Congress and personal and committee staff, as well as the general policymaking community, on current policy matters. Members of the media and the general public are invited to attend, and should register in advance because space is limited.

The Progress & Freedom Foundation is a market-oriented think tank that studies the impact of the digital revolution and its implications for public policy. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1993.
