COM 400 Week 5 New Social Issues

Consider the following:

The law attempts to balance individual rights with the
rights of society. Two areas in which this conflict is particularly challenging
are intellectual property rights as they relate to online materials and the new
kinds of surveillance that digital media enable.

Present the
following points using a new form of media (blog, video, podcast):

Make sure that your presentation is professional and

  • The ease of
    copying and sharing materials on the Internet and its effect on copyright

  • The
    influence of the open-source movement on attitudes toward copyright

  • The
    relationship between creativity and innovation with intellectual property

  • The personal
    and professional effects of digital surveillance versus organizational
    needs for information and control, such as employer monitoring of employee
    computer use, business monitoring of customers’ Internet behavior,
    government monitoring of citizens, and so on

  • Whether
    foreseeable changes in copyright protection and digital surveillance will
    improve or impair the balance in the future

Cite at
least two peer-reviewed sources to support your work.

Format the
paper consistent with APA guidelines.
