Join us on CopyTalk in September to hear about the leading legal cases affecting Fair Use and our ability to access, archive and foster our common culture. Our presenter on this topic will be Corynne McSherry, Legal Director at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

CopyTalk will take place on Thursday, September 3rd at 11am Pacific/2pm Eastern time.  After a brief introduction, Corynne will present for 50 minutes, and we will end with a Q&A session (questions will be collected during the presentations).

We are limited to 100 concurrent viewers, so we ask you to watch with others at your institution if at all possible.  The presentations are recorded and will be available online  soon after the presentation. Audio is provided online via the webinar software only, so you will need speakers for your computer; there is no call-in number for audio.

  1. These webinars are great, but you really need to find a webinar tool that supports more than 100 concurrent users. It’s very disappointing to get a group together to watch, only to be locked out due to the webinar being at capacity.

  2. The license agreement acquired by ALA limits us to 100 seats. I am trying to increase that number or find an alternative solution. Thanks for the comment.
