This is the first MOOC I have taken and, as such, it will set the standard for all subsequent MOOCs. This is a high bar, as the course content is comprehensive, clear, and fascinating. Not only are historic technological developments and intellectual property issues addressed, but seminal legal determinations and current controversies are presented as well.
A salient feature of this MOOC is its digestibility. Course modules are presented through series of ten minute streaming videos relating to a given topic. Thus the student can learn on the go and not be vexed by prolix downloads and losing one's place.
Also enjoyable is the creating of a participatory community for discussion and the accessibility of Professor Picker.
All in all a great experience. I was fearful that MOOCs would be "learning lite," but nothing could be further than the truth. The course has piqued my interest and motivated me to follow current developments.

Great course. Amazing amount of detail with which each topic is dealt. Advanced learners have an option to gain additional knowledge on the topics covered by using the extra-depth readings section. I have taken almost 10 MOOCs till date and none was as engaging as this.

Professor Picker is obviously very informed on the topics discussed. His course offered an accessible narrative of the evolution of legal issues relevant to internet media and related technologies. The course was also useful for acquiring an historical perspective of media businesses, particularly in the United States. I am glad I took this course and will no doubt refer to it in the future.

This is an exceptional course. The quality of the lectures – course content, lecturing approach, and audiovisual production – is top-notch.
Randy Picker provides a fascinating, engaging look at various devices and platforms, starting with their history and then integrating legal considerations, particularly under antitrust and copyright law. He presents the material in an easily comprehensible and digestible way, and explores subjects (and objects) that are very relevant in the modern, connected, digitized, and (borrowing a word from this class) mediated world.
I learned a lot, enjoyed the lectures, and can see the application of what I learned outside the virtual classroom. Thank you!

As a law student interested in both technology and competition law this course was heaven sent. I couldn't wait for the next week to start on the next course. The course has been extremely insightful, simplified complex terms especially in economics and competition law. May God bless the team involved in preparing this course. Thank you

Excellent. Instructor delivers in conversational tone and with many examples and excerpts. The recommended reading list, with links to most items, is worth the time spent on them. I have lived and worked in the tech world through the primary eras he discusses, 60's to today, and seeing the legal issues affecting the development and use of emerging technologies has been enlightening.
I would be interested in seeing this approach applied to matters of privacy and security.

I enjoyed the course thoroughly. Prof. Picker's lectures were informative, analytical and practical. The additional readings he identified were great for more in-depth learning. Overall, the entire course proved useful for me, and I look forward to more (similar) programmes.

I studied film production before digital took over, taught video production, went back to finish my degree after 30 years in the industry and decided on a B.A. in law with a film and tv minor. My University offered similar classes that focused on the history of Hollywood and Silicon Valley, but "Internet Giants" was the class that was missing.
This class will prepare you for the evolution of the media industry that will inevitably happen, take it from a guy who used to make movies before computers!

It was a privilege listening to this passionate and clear guide through the history of technology and antitrust with all the relevant docs . Each time I finished a segment I could not help listening to the next one. Like in a good tv series!

I think the course is great. The material is more than it seems because it has many layers. As an economist and practitioner of competition policy I found most of the examples very useful to understand the reasoning of judges (if that would be possible). The discussion on copyrights and competition are of most use to understand the limits of both, since very often arguments on copyright come to place in competition cases in this kind of industries. However, maybe the best of the course is how Professor Picker is able to mix and mach history with current events. The notion that technological development is not something new and that many of the discussions we have today had been taken before is very important in order not to lose ground in the analysis. I would like to thank Professor Picker for his effort, I also would like to enroll in future courses and actualizations of the present course he organizes.
