Rights, Rogues, and Refugees is a conversation about the law and our culture inspired by the groundbreaking research "Media Piracy in Emerging Economies", the first independent, large-scale study of music, film and software piracy in emerging economies, with a focus on Brazil, India, Russia, South Africa, Mexico and Bolivia. The panelists will discuss the tension between copyright enforcement and copy cultures in post-digital spaces, pirate philosophy beyond entertainment and how the local and the physically located, the object, retains its relevance in a culture of internet and memes. Organized by Geraldine Juárez (F.A.T Fellow/Eyebeam alumni) and Lindsay Howard.Video coming soon.

Artists as hackers
April 4th .
Speakers: Evan Roth and and F.A.T. Fellows Aram Bartholl, Tobias Leingruber, James Powderly, and Addie Wagenknecht.
"The free software and arts communities are filled with interesting people motivated not just by money but by the act of creation and a drive to make meaningful, or at least functional, contributions to society," writes F.A.T. Lab co-founder Evan Roth in his recent essay, Artist Hacker: From Free Software to Fine Art. Inspired by Roth's essay, Eyebeam will host a panel on Thursday April 4 from 7:00pm-8:30pm called Artists as Hackers. The discussion brings together Roth and F.A.T. Fellows Aram Bartholl, Tobias Leingruber, James Powderly, and Addie Wagenknecht for a look at how hacker culture has influenced a new generation of artists.
