Copyright Society Presents: Can We Save Our Culture? The Future of Digital Archiving.
On Tuesday April 3rd, 2007, the Northwest Chapter of the Copyright Society is presenting two dynamic speakers; Professor Diane Leenheer Zimmerman of NYU School of Law
Mr. Steve Davis, CEO of Corbis Corporation
There will be a moderated discussion on the legal, social, and economic implications underlying the trend of online archiving, most recently reflected in the Google’s Library project and the You-Tube phenomenon.
Can we meaningfully preserve our increasingly digital history under the current copyright laws?
Do private and public initiatives go too far in using copyright works without consent or compensation?
Is there a solution that allows preservation of culture and history without undercutting protection to copyright owners?
Held at Seattle University School of Law, the event features a reception from 5-6 p.m, followed by the presentation from 6-8 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to participate in a question and answer following a discussion moderated by Professor Maggie Chon. Through the generosity of Seattle University School of Law, The Center for the Study of Justice in Society at Seattle University and the law firm of Darby & Darby, this event is open without charge, although we encourage a contribution of $10 to enable future presentations of wide ranging interest to our community.
You are requested to RSVP via email in order to insure your space at this popular event. Copyright Society members and non-members are encouraged to invite their business and government clients, particularly in the art, library, and museum communities.
