A growing number of post-secondary training programs prepare students for entrepreneurial careers in creative industries like the media, design, entertainment, or the visual and performing arts.  Some of these programs include core education in intellectual property and its exploitation. Others fold intellectual property models into training on licensing and distribution models or general industry advice.  This panel will apply an open-content-licensing lens to the experience of delivering cultural industries training to ambitious local up-and-comers.  In doing so, the panel will create a space for critical self-examination on possibilities for mainstreaming alternative approaches to copyright, rather than marginalizing them, in media & entertainment training.
