A NINCH Copyright Town Meeting on Copyright Basics for Art and Artists
and the Changes Brought by the Internet

Co-sponsored by:

Case Western Center for Law, Technology and the Arts

Cleveland Museum of Art

Cleveland Intellectual Property Law Association

Americans for the Arts



 

In association with the Center for Law, Technology and the Arts at Case Western Reserve University School of Law, NINCH announces a Copyright Town Meeting, "Artists' Rights and Art's Rights."

Generously hosted by the Cleveland Museum of Art, and co-sponsored by the Cleveland Intellectual Property Law Association and Americans for the Arts, this NINCH Copyright Town Meeting focuses on some of the issues that artists and their audiences confront in creating, distributing and/or re-using the arts online.

What has been the impact of the Internet on the creative community and how has copyright law and practice and other legal structures affected what can be done online? Practitioners, lawyers, legal scholars, and a critical commentator on digital copyright law and practice come together to offer their wisdom and experiences to those creating and using the arts online.

After an introductory keynote address by June Besek, in which she reviews copyright basics and current key developments in digital copyright legislation, the meeting will comprise three panels:

  • Art & Work: Copyright, Contracts and Work-for-Hire

  • Access & Use: Copyright, The Public Domain and the First Amendment

  • Artists and Copyright: Experiences Working Online

The meeting will conclude with an open forum with questions, comments and discussion on the issues raised by the presentations.
