Panel 1A: "Privacy, Copyright, and Conventions of Use and Reuse of Twitter Content in Contemporary Online Practices"

Central to any consideration of the function of social media in society today has to be an examination of the conventions of use and reuse of social media content in the context of questions of the privacy of user information and copyright of content posted. This panel will focus on current practices and the often conflicting conventions of use in the respect for or disregard of copyright in different spheres, and the question of ethics of use in anonymizing content or (re)posting freely with identifiers intact. The goal is to present a much needed, rigorous examination of how social media content is being re-used on different platforms, by whom, and for what purpose. This inquiry is an issue of central importance for Canadians and globally as, unless we experience an infrastructure collapse, these concerns will increase and not abate.
