How Internet Aggregators are Affecting Journalism and What (if any) Legal Tools are Needed to Support the Industry

The Internet is rapidly changing the business model for traditional print media companies that invest heavily in creating original journalism.  This had led to calls for better legal protections for online content, which is often repackaged without permission by aggregators like Google as well as individual bloggers.  But many others believe that “information should be free” and that traditional media companies must adapt accordingly.  This is a contentious issue and speakers from both sides of the debate will be featured.
