The Digital Age has spurred a number of disruptive innovations in information dissemination and access that rely on fair use and teaching exceptions in Copyright Law. Globalization has also provided means for exchange of content that had not existed before. In response to these innovations, publishers have filed several high profile lawsuits in an attempt to protect their business models and regain control by stemming the flow of these new delivery methods.
NISO’s August 14 webinar, Copyright Decisions: Impact of Recent Cases on Libraries and Publishers, will shed some light on these recent lawsuits and discuss the ramifications the decisions may have on information flow now and in the future.
• Laura Quilter – Copyright and Information Policy Librarian, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
• Brandon Butler – Director of Public Policy Initiatives, Association of Research Libraries
• Skott Klebe – Manager of Special Initiatives, Copyright Clearance Center
