Free Expression & The Internet: Watch The Copia Summit Roundtable Discussion Live

from the copia-inaugural-summit dept

As many of you know, we're currently in the midst of day two of the Copia Inaugural Summit in San Jose. It's been a fantastic event so far with lots of really interesting ideas flowing back and forth, and we'll be bringing you video and audio from the various presentations and breakout groups over the coming days and weeks.

Today, the Summit features a roundtable discussion about freedom of expression online, and what tech companies and platform providers can do to promote open and diverse speech around the world. Joining us for this discussion are Wikimedia Foundation's Senior Legal Counsel Michelle Paulson, laywer and writer Sarah Jeong, and Secret Inc.'s head of Policy, Safety, Privacy & Support Dave Willner. The roundtable starts today at 11:30 am PST, and we encourage you to watch the live stream online and tweet your comments and thoughts with the hashtag #Copia2015. It should be a fascinating discussion addressing a key issue in the digital world, and we hope you'll join us.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team
