Re:Create Coalition To Host SXSW Panel On Copyright

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Re:Create Coalition will host the South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive panel “Copyright & Creators 2026” on March 11 to discuss the future of copyright law over the next decade. The panel of policy experts–including a fanworks leader, social justice advocate and futurist–will debate the evolution of copyright law and how it affects underprivileged communities, consumers, fans, digital entrepreneurs, cosplayers, and more.

“SXSW Interactive brings together the leaders in digital creativity and is a showcase for the latest emerging technologies, so we look forward to bringing this important discussion on the future of copyright law to Austin. In today’s Internet-connected world we are all becoming creators, entrepreneurs and consumers of content. How we interact with copyright law influences us on a daily basis, and we look forward to exploring these issues and how they will evolve over the next decade at the festival,” said Josh Lamel, Executive Director for Re:Create Coalition.
