The Kraemer Copyright Conference is a dynamic and enriching FREE conference that offers public, academic, special, and school librarians the opportunity to learn about U.S. Copyright Law, recent updates to the law and how it impacts the services we offer our library users. This conference provides an opportunity for professionals at every level and across libraries to discuss the importance of copyright in libraries.
Public Domain: Opening the Vault
This year’s Kraemer Copyright Conference will discuss the implications of copyrighted works entering the Public Domain and what this means for information use and access. On January 1, 2019, thousands of renowned works including books, music, and art from 1923 became public domain. These copyrighted works were scheduled to become public domain in 1999 but the Copyright Term Extension Act extended that time to 20 more years.
We will have an excellent group of keynotes:
April Hathcock, Director of Scholarly Communications & Information Policy, New York University Libraries
Kenneth Crews, Attorney, author, professor, and international copyright consultant
Kevin Smith, Dean of Libraries, The University of Kansas
Kyle Courtney, Copyright Advisor, Harvard University
Sandra Aya Enimil, Copyright Services Librarian and Program Director of Copyright Services, The Ohio State University Libraries
Sara Benson, Copyright Librarian & Adjunct Assistant Professor, University of Illinois Libraries
