Event: COPYRIGHT UTOPIA: Alternative Visions, Methods & Policies

Join the Center for Intellectual Property, your peers and colleagues as they convene for the Seventh Annual Symposium on copyright and information use.

COPYRIGHT UTOPIA: Alternative Visions, Methods & Policies
May 21-23, 2007
Marriott Inn & Conference Center
Adelphi, Maryland

What would copyright utopia look like? Do you envision an island paradise surrounded by oceans of free content lapping at your feet? Is every piece of data or content freely and fully available--no restrictions, no fees, and no questions asked? Or is everything under lock and key with access granted only to a privileged membership? Or do you wish to live somewhere in between? As colleges and universities continue to make decisions managing third party copyrighted works, let's pause and ask difficult questions of our legal structure and human needs. What methods and policies would best serve students, faculty, publishers, and the academic enterprise?
