Web 2.0: Are Today's Copyright & Privacy Laws Relevant?

Marc Dautlich and Nick Eziefula (associates in the media, communications and technology group at Olswang) have written an interesting analysis here for The Times addressing the potential impact Web2.0 collaboration technologies and the emergence of social networking (as we know it today) has on the relevance of current laws around copyright and privacy infringement within the United Kingdom. Worth more than the standard four minute skim.

Irrespective of the outcome or future of this discussion, one thing is clear - if the law doesn't catch up at pace to the evolution of these areas, be certain that lawyers and their evolving service offerings and expertise will.
