ABC Copyright Conference begins tomorrow!
The 2017 ABC Copyright Conference hosted by Queen’s University will be held at the Donald Gordon Conference Centre from Thursday, June 29 to Friday, June 30, 2017. This conference will focus on the use of copyrighted materials, particularly in teaching scenarios with a great lineup of speakers, including Ryan Merkeley, the CEO of Creative Commons.
The conference is organized by the ABC Copyright group, a grassroots organization made up of individuals involved in the day-to-day aspects of copyright and its implication for their respective organizations. Athabasca University was one of the founding institutions in 2002 and runs and maintains the group’s ABC Copyright ListServ. The ABC Copyright group has more than 380 members mostly comprising copyright administrators at post-secondary institutions across Canada. Copyright offices, libraries, bookstores, instructional technologies, distance learning, legal offices, and audio/visual units are among the areas represented from these institutions.
The conference is sold out, but you can check out the ABC Copyright twitter to read more about some of the topics that will be explored.
