Social Media: Public Policy and Law

The panel which followed Billy Bush’s talk was titled “Public Policy and Law” and conducted by the following panelists: 140 Characters Conference

In this first clip (5:47),  Glenn Manishin provides an interesting preface to the talks and then outlines the three topics the panel will focus on:

  1. “Who owns user-generated content (UGC)?” (Glenn Manishin)
  2. “What are the challenges arising from the real-time web for employers and employees?” (Adrian T. Dayton)
  3. “Regulation:  what the FTC has said about endorsement guidelines.” (Brett Trout)

Glenn Manishin then hands the discussion to Adrian T. Dayton, who discusses Topic #2:  “What are the challenges arising from the real-time web for employers and employees?”

In this second clip (3:51), Adrian T. Dayton hands the discussion to Brett Trout, who then discusses Topic #3:  “Regulation:  what the FTC has said about endorsement guidelines.”

In this third clip (5:51), Brett Trout hands the discussion back to Glenn Manishin, who then discusses Topic #1:  “Who owns user-generated content (UGC)?”

I found the panel highly interesting.  But even in this case, the (presumably uniform) 15 minute time-frame afforded to panels throughout the “140 Conference” was  strictly enforced (as demonstrated by the recognizable Academy-Award’s “hurry-up” music).  Frankly, I thought this panel had at least another minute.

Note: Regardless, if one is giving a talk at the Kodak Theatre — where the Academy Awards are held — I think it’s kind of cool if your talk  doesn’t end before the “hurry-up” music.  That way the technicians have to run the music and you get the maximum Academy Awards “effect” as a speaker :-)
