Educational Media and Copyright Law
Eric Schwartz will be delivering the keynote address on "Educational Media and Copyright Law" at the 38th National Media Market & Conference.
The current and future landscape under U.S. copyright law for acquiring, cataloging and making films available to library and educational users. The talk will focus, first, on the current copyright scheme and the “risk management” decisions made by media professionals under existing law, as well as on options to improve access. Other topical issues that will be covered include ways to make orphan works more accessible, and congressional proposals for Section 108 reforms and a “small claims” court to adjudicate small, mostly non-commercial, uses.
