Just because it's on the Internet, doesn't mean it's free!

Since the early commercialisation of the internet in the mid 1990s, generations of business folk have been convinced of their freedom to freely exploit whatever they find on the web ‹ wrongly. Most lawyers will be quick to see that what you find on the internet may attract intellectual property rights; be subject to terms of access; or even be regulated (think personal data, for example). This talk explores the range of legal issues from "free" software to "free" images; and from scraping social media to exploiting other people's content. It also touches on the practical side of what organisations should do when exploiting online content from big data to software builds and the implications once the legal considerations are understood.
