I am not a Lawyer: Providing Copyright Services in Libraries
Saturday, June 24
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Location: McCormick Place, W178b

Copyright and Intellectual Property questions come to us whether we want them to or not. We're not lawyers but we can answer reference questions. Those reference questions go beyond copyright—permissions, public performance rights, images suitable for publication and, license terms. How do you start providing copyright services? How do you train staff to listen for questions they don’t ask? This panel has been there and done that.

You Make the Call in the Copyright Game
Sunday, June 25
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Location: McCormick Place, W193

In this gameshow format, expert panelists will make arguments for and against fair use. Then, the audience will vote—fair use or not? You decide! The panelists will get “points” for every majority answer on their “side.” Who will win? Everyone wins when they better understand copyright and fair use.

Another report from the swamp: Copyright policy developments from Washington
Monday, June 26
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Location: McCormick Place, W179b

Join three copyright policy experts and get the latest on copyright law review, expanded exceptions for people with disabilities, and the status of the U.S. Copyright Office under Librarian of Congress Dr. Carla Hayden. Additional topics will be discussed if there is late breaking news.
