Community Network Webinars and Events!

RE: ‘Rights to the Network’ webinar: Oct 10th with Ritu Srivastava

Hi All,
I just picked up on this topic webinar that will happen on 10 October 2019. I think it is a worthwhile event to attend online!
Kathleen

Dear all,

As many of you know, we started a webinar series on ‘Rights to the Network’ as part of the IGF Dynamic Coalition on Community Networks (DC3) to help build capacity and knowledge around issues related to community networks.

I’m excited to let you know that the next webinar will be livestreamed the YouTube Channel for the Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy at the University of Oxford (https://www.youtube.com/user/PCMLPOXFORD) on October 10th at 9:30 AM (UTC) with Ritu Srivastava talking about innovations in licensing, based on her experiences in India.

The first webinar was with Steve Song about access to infrastructure. You can watch it here: https://youtu.be/ijjYmOYZzWk

This is a great opportunity to create a dialogue around these issues – you can comment and participate live with Q&A and afterward with comments on the video. Stay tuned for more info closer to the date.

Best wishes,

Kira
