Students examine different types of digital constraints and freedoms, and their consequences to citizens, creators and democracy itself. They debate the various ways digital media content is restrained, shaped, and altered. Students identify the roles of law and regulation in this process. Core issues include: The legal status of user-generated content, remixing, fan-fiction, and machinima; violent and misogynistic content; privacy and surveillance in an on-line and digital device context; big data, digital manipulation and content addiction.
