I'll be attending SXSW as well. I will try to catch your panel.

What are your thoughts on this discussion around tweets not being copyrightable? http://bit.ly/bEG1y0 Noting that Haikus apparently have already passed into the protected class.

It is a gray area now but I don't think it will be for long. I certainly think it's rubbish to say that tweets, solely because of their length, are un-copyrightable. That's just silly. But sorting out what's fair use of them will be very tricky. At the very least I hope that it will encourage people to use proper punctuation. I am such an old lady. There is a session on this at SXSW - you probably saw already - "Can You Copyright a Tweet?" Looking forward to that one.
