Event Details





Jonathan Taplin, author of Move Fast and Break Things coming off his recent appearance on 60 Minutes will be our keynote speaker.  No one does a better job of telling the story of the internet; how its' evolved over time and the dire situation that demands our attention today.


For decades major internet players like Google and Facebook have been fighting off any attempts to put guidelines in place to address criminal and abusive activity on their platforms.  

But now, with last years foreign interferance in U.S. elections and the recent revelations about Facebook and Cambridge Analytica discussions about the need for internet governance have come sharply into focus.  

The Forum will bring together a diverse group of thought leaders and subject experts to discuss the absence of safeguards on the internet and make recommendations for ensuring a safe, secure internet for everyone. 




> 8.30 - 9.00 AM


Session 1: Keynote Speaker: Jonathan Taplin
Title: Is the internet breaking the creative eco-system?

In his latest book, 'MOVE FAST AND BREAK THINGS' – How Facebook, Google, and Amazon Cornered Culture and Undermined Democracy', film producer and academic, Jonathan Taplin, documents the monopolization of the Internet by Google, Facebook and Amazon, and proposes a new future for musicians, journalists, authors and filmmakers in the digital age.

Session 2: Panel Discussion:  Whose Safe Harbor                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Safe harbors were meant to provide a balance between access to content and the liability of internet platforms. Yet, in the US, like in Europe, or Australia, safe harbors have essentially allowed digital service providers to build massive businesses with little accountability.

So who are these safe harbors really protecting? How can a better balance be achieved between the normal aspiration to access content and the rights of content providers? What are the key points for safe harbor reform?

This session will feature representatives from the creative sector who will discuss the impact of the safe harbor regime on their businesses and what’s needed to achieve better copyright protection in the digital eco-system.

Session 3: Panel Discussion:  Call for Internet Governance


The digital promise was to bring additional freedom and new ways to apprehend the world through connectivity and new tools. But have these promises been kept? What kind of environment did the digital revolution foster for mankind.

Panelists will discuss what needs to happen to ensure the internet is a safe environment for users. 

This educational conference is organized by FarePlay, Inc. a Florida Based non-profit.
