While ACTA has attracted strong support and fierce opposition, this talk brings together trade associations, artists and academics with different views to discuss the effects of the legislation to the creative process. The panel will tackle important questions like: How the proposed ACTA will affect 'fair use' and equivalent practice? What will be the effects of the enforcement practices on the creative economy and music creativity? Issues of finance, property and matters of sampling/remixing will also be discussed.
Introductory presentation to ACTA and related issues by Kennisland copyright expert, Paul Keller.
Panel discussion with Tim Kuik (stichting BREIN), Mattin (artist) and Ante Wessels (vrijschrift, FFII).
The discussion will be moderated by STEIM director, Dick Rijken.

Following the ACTA panel discussion we'll have a concert with sample-culture artists Mattin and dj sniff.
Turntablist dj sniff (Takuro Mizuta Lippit) explores the unique sonic qualities of vinyl, re-performing music recording through custom-built instruments. He recently released the album "EP - dj sniff plays Evan Parker" on Psi records and is the Artistic Director of STEIM djsniff.com
Known for his recording prolificacy and critical stance to the notion of copyright, artist Mattin tries to approach the essence of improvisation and explore the limits of musical context, using silence and distortion. Mattin runs the record label 'Free Software Series" and is co-editor of the collection of essays 'Noise and Capitalism'. His recordings and essays are freely available on his website mattin.org
This event is organized by STEIM in association with Smart Project Space.
