Open Video is a broad based movement of video creators, technologists,
academics, filmmakers, entrepreneurs, activists, remixers, and many
others. When most folks think of “open,” they think of open source and
open codecs. They’re right—but there’s more to Open Video than open
codecs. Open Video is the growing movement for transparency,
interoperability, and further decentralization in online video. These
qualities provide more fertile ground for independent producers,
bottom-up innovation, and greater protection for free speech online.
YouTube and other online video applications are rightly celebrated for
empowering end-users; however, online video lacks some of the
essential qualities that make text and images on the web such powerful
tools for free speech and technical innovation. Email, blogs, and
other staples of the open web rely on ubiquitous and interoperable
technologies that have low barriers to entry; they are massively
decentralized and resistant to censorship or regulation. Video,
meanwhile, relies on centralized distribution and proprietary
technologies which can threaten cultural discourse and innovation.
Open Video is about the legal and social norms surrounding online
video. It’s the ability to attach the license of your choice to videos
you publish. It’s about media consolidation, aggregation, and
decentralization. It’s about fair use. In short, it’s about a lot of
things, and that’s why this conference is going to be so exciting!
