CopyTalk must go on!

We just dodged a calamity that would have forced us to cancel CopyTalk!

What was the problem? Our moderator, Patrick Newell and the person who hits the record button (me) will not be available on the 7th. What’s the solution? We have pitch hitters!Cup of coffee on a desk. Laura Quilter, acclaimed copyright expert and counsel at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst and long-time OITP copyright education subcommittee member, will moderate. The technical genius will be ALA’s own Julianna Kloeppel, eLearning Specialist. The webinar is bound to go off without a technical glitch.

Our speaker is Eric Harbeson, music copyright expert as well as a long-time member of the copyright education subcommittee. He will present the ins and outs of music and copyright (obviously).
