Making Collections Accessible: Legal Tools for the 21st Century

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Three leading IP lawyers will present tools and strategies for addressing the intellectual property, privacy and contract rights associated with works. They will address best practices, copyright duration, fair use, 108, moral rights, and systems that can be scaled up from one work to thousands of works. They will also discuss collections that have been opened for specific uses and the growing presence of older collections that have been digitized and now populate the Web. The audience will come away with a firm strategy and understanding of what legal issues may or may not arise in any given collection, and how to assess the legal issues when they do arise. This information will lower the barrier in making library and archival collections more open to all. Kenneth Crews is a leading authority in addressing copyright as it relates to the needs of universities, colleges, libraries, museums, publishers and other cultural organizations He is trained as a librarian and a lawyer, and has advised nearly everyone in the world on copyright issues. Greg Cram focuses his time on solving the copyright issues at the New York Public Library and has been a huge voice in DPLA. Elizabeth Townsend Gard has invented the Durationator, a global copyright tool to determine not only the term of a work, but other issues including library exceptions, termination of transfer, moral rights, and other issues that arise in determining whether a work is still under copyright or in the public domain. Deborah Kempe will serve as moderator. This session will be recorded and made accessible after the conference in the ARLIS/NA Learning Portal.
