The Internet Archive will host an upcoming virtual discussion, “Policies for a Better Internet: Securing Digital Rights for Libraries,” on December 8 at 10am Pacific/1pm Eastern. Facilitated by Chris Lewis, President of Public Knowledge, the discussion will focus on the Internet Archive’s upcoming report “Securing Digital Rights for Libraries: Towards an Affirmative Policy Agenda for a Better Internet” and “ongoing copyright reform projects from Creative Commons and ARL.” Speakers include library and internet policy experts Lila Bailey (Internet Archive), Katherine Klosek (Association of Research Libraries) and Brigitte Vézina (Creative Commons).
This conversation will be of interest to digital humanities library folks who are interested in the Movement for a Better Internet or who want to learn more about issues facing copyright reform and libraries in the U.S.
Pre-registration via eventbrite is required.
