When it comes to media, the rules are changing at a faster pace than ever. The question is…have you?

This Saturday, October 22, the Citizen Media Law Project at Harvard University‘s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, in conjunction with The Center for Sustainable Journalism at Kennesaw State University, will present Media Law in the Digital Age, a one-day conference that will explore the critical issues around media law for anyone who publishes online content, works in digital media, or is interested in how technology has influenced journalism and law.

The conference begins with an opening plenary session titled “New Developments in Digital Media Law and What They Mean”, featuring David McCraw (Vice President and Assistant General Counsel for The New York Times Company) and Lucy Dalglish (Executive Director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press). McCraw and Dalglish will also discuss the current landscape of the public press in the aftermath of the Wikileaks saga.

Other sessions on the docket include “Apps and Wireless: New Platforms for Online Content Providers and Journalists”, “Social Media and Its Legal Implications: Where Your Personal Life Meets Journalism”, and “Is Recording in Public a Crime?
