Advances in digital technology for the most part expand the possibilities of communication and information; nevertheless, legal regulations instituted in reaction to these developments do not nurture free access to information nearly as much as they support the commercial interests of those who exploit intellectual property. Radio FRO Conference participants will discuss technical and legal aspects of free access to information and seek alternative approaches to licensing for non-commercial use in free media.
