Legal Aspects of e-Repositories and e-Collections Conference
31 May - 1 June 2006, Scarman House, University of Warwick

This year's JISC Legal conference will deal with the legal issues relevant to the establishment, development and use of e-repositories and e-collections in the UK's further and higher education sectors. The conference will consider the law in relation to digital collection building at all levels, whether in the shape of institutional repositories and depositories, regional and national depositories, project and thematic depositories, library e-collections, and even course-specific online material collections.

Dr Malcolm Read, the Executive Secretary of JISC, has agreed to chair the proceedings.

The event will look at the following issues:

* Ensuring copyright compliance with respect to material deposited
* Ensuring robust licensing of materials for use
* Dealing with copyright in cases of adaptation for reuse
* The legal consequences of digital rights management systems
* The database right in relation to e-repositories and e-collections
* The extent of an e-repository's liability for breach of copyright
* The extent of an e-repository's liability for defamation
* The law regarding accessibility, disability discrimination and
e-repositories and e-collections
* The submission of personal data in e-repositories, and the
consequences of data protection law

In addition, there will be particular case studies considering copyright, licensing and e-repositories at different levels, and particular workshops in relation to medical, art and research e-repositories.

Early booking is advised to secure a place on the conference as numbers will be restricted due to seating availability in lecture theatre. Accommodation and a social event are also available for the evening of Tuesday, 30 May, if you want to avoid an early start.
