Join copyright attorney Brianna Schofield, Executive Director and Erika Wilson, Communications and Operations Manager from the Authors Alliance on October 5th to learn about rights reversion. Authors who have a rights reversion provision in their contractual agreements with publishers can regain their rights of copyright. By doing so, authors can bring their out-of-print books back in print, deposit them in open access repositories, or otherwise make their works available to the public. This CopyTalk will cover why, when, and how to pursue a reversion of rights, review practical tools and resources, and show how librarians can educate authors about their options to regain rights from publishers and make their works newly available.

Tune in and see if rights reversion is right for you!

Mark your calendars for October 5th, 11am Pacific/ 2pm Eastern for “Rights reversion: restoring knowledge and culture, one book at a time.” Go to http://ala.adobeconnect.com/copytalk/ and sign in as a guest. You’re in.

CopyTalks are FREE and brought to you by OITP’s copyright education subcommittee. Archived webinars can be found here.
