Open Video Conference 2011

The Open Video Alliance and New York Law School’s Institute for Information Law & Policy are gearing up to present the third installment of the Open Video Conference, to be held at New York Law School September 10-12. OVC is a multiday summit of thought leaders from across the policy, technology, and creative spectrum coming together to explore the future of video and the open web. Adopting the philosophy of “Less Yak, More Hack!”, this year’s event is more focused and outcome-oriented. Every session at OVC will be working towards building tangible outputs, from policy papers to software and hardware, and everything in between.

Here are just a few of the fantastic things that have been announced for this year’s OVC:

  • A special keynote address from Jillian York, Director of International Freedom of Expression at the Electronic Frontier Foundation
  • Exploring DMCA Automation, led by Tim Hwang
  • Creating an Alternative Copyright Education, led by Pat Aufderheide
  • Principles of Visual Privacy, led by Helen Nissenbaum and Sam Gregory
  • A Defensive Patent License, led by Jason Schultz and Jennifer Urban
  • Database-Driven Narratives, led by Florian Thalhofer, Matt Soar, and Dave Reisch
  • Technologies for Anonymization: SecureSmartCam, led by Bryan Nunez
  • Popcorn.js pitch session and plugin sprint
  • Jailbreaking Station (we will jailbreak your phone at OVC!)

In the coming weeks we’ll be rolling out even more awesome surprises, so stay tuned! In the meantime, head over to to register for this amazing weekend of hacking in New York City! Space is limited, so register today!
