CopyTalk webinar on copyright court rulings now available

Cup of coffee with beans.

By trophygeek

If you missed the September 3rd webinar “Copyright Court Cases,” with Corynne McSherry, legal director at the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) you can now access it in our CopyTalk archive.

Mark your calendars! OITP’s Copyright Education Subcommittee sponsors CopyTalk on the first Thursday of every month at 2:00 pm (Eastern). Upcoming webinars include the College Art Association’s best practices for fair use, fan fiction copyright issues, and state government documents aka “Is the state tax code protected by copyright?” Our October 1st webinar will be on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and what it could mean for libraries with Krista Cox, Director of Public Policy Initiatives from the Association of Research Libraries (ARL).

If you want to suggest topics for CopyTalk webinars, let us know via email (crussell@alawash.org) and use the subject heading “CopyTalk.”

Oh yes! The webinars are free, and we want to keep it that way. We have 100 seat limit but any additional seats are outrageously expensive! If possible, consider watching the webinar with colleagues or joining the webinar before start time. And remember, there is an archive.
