I always tell people that they should take a copyright workshop from Kenny Crews. Crews is highly knowledgeable about copyright and talks about it in a way that is keeps the audience engaged. (Okay...what I really say is that he is entertaining.) I learned from him that you need to always go back to the law, something that I repeat everytime I talk about copyright.
This week news has circulated that Kenneth D. Crews, J.D., M.L.S., Ph.D. has been appointed Director of Columbia University Libraries’ new Copyright Advisory Office, starting in January 2008. He is currently the "Samuel R. Rosen II Professor in the Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis and in the IU School of Library and Information Science. He is also Associate Dean of the Faculties for Copyright Management, and in that capacity he directs the Copyright Management Center based at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI)." In 2005, Crews was the first recipient of the "L. Ray Patterson Award: In Support of Users' Rights" given by the American Library Association's (ALA) Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP) Copyright Advisory Committee.
Congratulations to Kenny Crews!
