December’s CopyTalk was so popular, we had to turn people away because the webinar room filled so quickly. For those that missed the show, “Where oh Where is the Public Domain,” presented by public domain guru himself Peter Hirtle of the Berkman Klein Center at Harvard University, a recording is now available.
There are so many tricks to the public domain! Can someone license public domain material? What if the work you think is in the public domain is still covered in the United Kingdom? Are facts and data (where the compilation itself requires research) protected? Is there any public policy justification for a long (and longer) copyright term? Answer: No!
Most CopyTalk webinars have been archived and are available for viewing.
Tune in for the next CopyTalk. Mark your calendars the first Thursday of the month at 2 p.m. Eastern Time.
As we look forward to 2018, please know that we are currently seeking webinar topics. Send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading “CopyTalk Idea.”
