Byte Online: Should Knowledge Be Free? Sponsored by Harbottle & Lewis

January 27, 2021

What content should be free? How much should content cost? Is there a difference between print and digital content? What about access for developing countries and less privileged groups? Are attitudes towards book piracy and fair use changing? What is Open Access, Plan S and Creative Commons? Join our panel of experts as we explore these and other issues around the democratisation of content.

Byte The Book's Justine Solomons will chair this event. Her speakers will be:

  • Ros Pyne - Director, Open Access Books & Book Policies, Springer Nature
  • Sam Eardley - Sales and Marketing Director, Collins Learning at HarperCollins Publishers
  • Ross Mounce - Director of Open Access Programmes, Arcadia Fund
  • Shireen Peermohamed - Partner in Media, Harbottle & Lewis
