Event 2: It’s my content 2.0

As part of the iSay Visitor Generated Content project, The University of Leicester is hosting a free round table devoted to ethics, ownership and IPR as they pertain to user-created content. We hope to address tensions between museums’ aspiration to embrace VGC on one hand, and their anxieties over maintaining quality and trustworthiness, contributing tested and dis/trusted approaches to institutional moderation. We will ask, is there scope for a guide for best practice in this field, and what might it look like?
