If you can, consider attending the ABC Copyright Conference in Ottawa!

Howard Knopf and Sam Trosow will be speaking!

"This year’s theme is particularly apt. In addition to 2011-12 having been a year full of developments and changes in Canadian copyright law and policy, this is the first year the Conference will be held outside the West! We are looking forward to discussing the following topics:

Fair dealing;
The interplay between copyright and academic freedom
 An update on the Access Copyright tariff proceedings
 An open forum on copyright questions
 Best practices in educating users about copyright
 Copyright and orphan works.

Sessions will run all day on the 4th and the 5th, with a cocktail reception and dinner  on the evening of the 4th on the rooftop patio at the beautiful National Arts Centre, just across the canal from the University."
