EVENT: Copyright Camp, University of Michigan

The University of Michigan Library will be hosting a Copyright Camp 2013, on the afternoon of June 20, with a theme of Copyright and Data. Registration is free. From the announcement:

We’ll kick off with a keynote from Michael Carroll, Professor of Law and Director of the Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property at American University’s Washington College of Law and founding board member of Creative Commons. His talk will be about “Sharing and Hoarding Research Data: Copyright, New Federal Funding Requirements and More.”  Carroll will discuss the copyright framework that applies automatically to research data as it is generated, compiled or visualized, new requirements likely to emerge from federal funding agencies in response to a new directive from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and the role of informal expectations in scientific disciplines about annotating and sharing or hoarding research data.

This post was produced through a cooperation between Lauren Gottlieb-Miller and Amy Wickner (Editors-at-Large for the week), Sarah Potvin (dh+lib review editor for the week), and Zach Coble and Roxanne Shirazi (site editors).
