On October 20th, New York Legal Hackers and the Brooklyn Law School Legal Hackers hosted a node of the Open Media Legal Hack, a collaboration between Legal Hackers and the MIT Open Media Lab. Participants convened at The Bushwick Generator to explore and develop creative solutions for the ownership, control, and exchange of property rights to data and other digital content to empower creators in the music and media industry context.

Jonathan Askin (Professor, Brooklyn Law School), Dazza Greenwood (Scientist, MIT Media Lab), Anjlee Khurana (Legal Engineer, Monax), and Jesse Kirshbaum (Founder of The Nue Agency) spoke on how Music Modernization Act of 2018 will impact the music industry and to inspire the hackers’ projects. Projects from all of the Open Media Legal Hack nodes will be posted here.
