Copyright & Creators: 2026

What does the future hold for copyright? Who are the gatekeepers and how does this power structure need to change to meet not only the needs of today’s digital age, but also the needs of future creativity and innovation? The Copyright & Creators: 2026 panel will speculate on where the innovations and advancements will be in 2026. Will our laws keep pace with the times or fall behind? And how will people continually interact with copyright? Moderated by a veteran reporter, panelists include a respected academic, a noted futurist and a fan fiction leader who will debate the trajectory of copyright law and where some of the future conversations and conflicts will be a decade from now.
