This chapter examines existing scholarship for the purpose of developing a relatively coherent conceptual framework for the rest of the volume. It first discusses thematic findings from generations of historians seeking to make sense of slavery: How and why did it happen? What are its main characteristics? Is it still going on today—and with what consequences? The most central issue has to do with the definition of slavery, which the chapter approaches tangentially and from multiple historical perspectives. Hereafter the chapter confronts and dissects this issue based on the 2012 Bellagio-Harvard Guidelines on the Legal Parameters of Slavery, providing for an assessment of the situation in Appconn and the digital media industry at large.

Keywords:   slavery, Bellagio-Harvard Guidelines, Appconn, digital media industry
