Thursday April 9th I will be speaking over at UW to The League of Professional System Administrators (LOPSA) about Creative Commons the DMCA and User Generated Content. The talk will include a CC 101 portion and some new content that I am looking for feedback on. I am using this a a dry run to test content that will be included in the NTC 2009 Panel on Fair Use, User Generated Content and the DMCA Safe Harbor. Here is a copy of the full announcement with location and directions:
