Solutions once created to safeguard creative work or community standards are found wanting and are often observed in the breach. This panel will analyze wide-ranging current practices, the understanding of which could change future activities and policies, including intellectual property law, ideas about censorship, and terms of service agreements. Instagram, in particular, has been a game-changer in terms of the kinds of images that are shared on a global level, and has raised new questions about the creation, sharing and ownership of visual culture.
