    Co-sponsored by Society of American Archivists

    Instructor: Dr. Jean E. Dryden

    Registration for this workshop is separate from conference registration. The registration fee is $199 for SAA members registering by March 25. Enrollment is limited to 35 participants.

    This course covers copyright legal issues specific to archives of digital material. You'll examine the impact of electronic technologies on the long-held law and tenets of copyright, including digital rights management and acquiring and advising on the use of rights in records. You'll look at the basic text of relevant federal statutes and significant case law as well as examine case studies. A very brief review of copyright essentials will be provided to ground the discussion. The focus of the day will be on how to think through and identify options for resolving the most commonly encountered copyright issues.
