Fair Use and Fan Engagement
WatchMojo leverages its relationships, copyright law, and common sense to build a business reaching 100 million unique viewers around the fair use doctrine and exception. With technology having radically redrawn the landscape and consumer behavior blowing the lid off traditional production and distribution models, it seems like the law and business practices have not yet caught up. Where does this leave fan engagement? In a future where everyone is a content creator, curator, and distributor of sorts, how open should the investors and creators of original intellectual property be? After all, Game of Thrones was one of the most pirated series ever, yet it also went on to become one of the most successful ever. HBO's decision to embrace its fan base spawned thousands of fan communities, series etc. which further propelled the franchise to global domination. In this discussion, WatchMojo founder Ashkan Karbasfrooshan brings a diverse set of perspectives on both sides of the debate to determine where the balance is between protecting rights holders versus the biggest proponents of fair use.
