Description of Digital Licensing: 

Are you creating a Web site, purchasing CD- ROMs, online subscriptions or
databases?  Learn your rights and obligations, and the variety of legal
arrangements now in use.  Attend this half day seminar in which you will
be led through a clause by clause analysis of a typical licensing
agreement.  The seminar examines:  licensing arrangements generally;  Web
site versus CD-ROM uses;  controlling your works through non- exclusive
licenses; the uses of works through a licensing agreement; sublicenses and
secondary rights;  moral rights, publicity, privacy rights; compensation
(the value of electronic rights);  duration of a licensing agreement;  
ownership of works;  revocation of rights in certain circumstances;  the
use of confidential information; warranties and indemnities.

Description of E-Commerce for Governments, Libraries, Archives and Museums

E-commerce isn't just about making money from Web transactions; it's about
using the Web to make money.  E-commerce may involve financial
transactions that are conducted electronically like purchasing an image
online that is delivered online to the consumer.  Or paying online for
parking fines or registering for a course.  It may also involve paying
online for a product or service that is delivered offline such as
purchasing a book, research study or music CD.  Or, the transaction may
involve marketing or promotion online while payment or delivery of the
product or service is made offline.  For example, a library may promote
its research services in its Web site, however you must telephone the
library to make your research request and pay by credit card over the
telephone.  As e-commerce continues to rapidly evolve, we see more and
more uses of the Internet which help GLAMs gain financially.  In this half
day seminar, we will examine how governments, libraries, archives and
museums are selling content and services on the Net, assess and establish
your digital goals, and develop your online strategy.
