Copyright Utopia:
Alternative Visions, Methods & Policies
May 21-23, 2007
UMUC Inn & Conference Center, Adelphi, Maryland

Will the efforts of organizations like Creative Commons create a 
more effective and efficient method for managing copyrighted 
works? Is licensing the only alternative to copyright? Should 
alternative methods work within the current legal structure? What 
would your copyright utopia look like?... Will your copyright 
future be Orwellian, live within the copyright Matrix, or be a 
Brave New World?

This year's symposium promises to be very thought provoking. Join 
noted scholars and practitioners as they discuss the current 
state of copyright nationally and internationally. The 
Pre-Conferences will include:

Copyright 101

Kenneth Crews, Professor, Associate Dean and Director, Copyright 
Management Center, Indiana University-Purdue University 
Indianapolis (IUPUI). A refresher class for those who want a 
solid overview of the issues or a basic introduction to the topic 
for those who may be new to the field. Topics covered: basic 
definitions and concepts; legislative framework; guidelines; 
ownership, access, and use.

E-Reserves Policy and Implementation

Donna Ferullo, Director, University Copyright Office, Purdue 
University. An opportunity for everyone to probe more deeply into 
the complex questions of ownership, access, and use that surround 
the growing movement to digitize and make available ever 
increasing amounts of content.
