About the event:

This panel discussion and book signing will look at the state of American media and culture businesses in the digital world, topics raised in the new book Free Ride: How Digital Parasites are destroying the Culture Business, and How the Culture Business Can Fight Back.

Free Ride - called a crash course in the existential problems facing the media - takes readers from the halls of Congress to the dorm room of Shawn Fanning, charting how the industry lost control of its destiny and offers innovative solutions for how they can get back on track.

Georgetown Cupcakes and light refreshments will be provided.
