As traditional media merges with new & social media, the issues we need to be concerned about also start to change. Filmmakers are only now starting to wake up to the fact that they should be the owners of the data that their work generates, particularly if they are being asked to license their work for such low fees as currently are in vogue. Let's say that you do gather 500,000 email addresses during the build and release of your movie. What are you going to do with those addresses? What moral and ethical issues are related to this?
Is it just my imagination or have I really not seen a privacy panel at a film convention? Who is going to take the lead on this?
And whom would you suggest be on this panel?
Have you checked out the Electronic Privacy Information Center?
