Public Interest Copyright Advocacy and Fair Use Education 1995-2015

Thursday, September 17, 2015
Event 1:00pm-5:30pm; Reception 5:30-7:00pm

Room 603 – American University Washington College of Law, 4801 Massachusetts Ave NW

This event celebrates significant anniversaries of two initiatives that were launched at AUWCL - the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Digital Future Coalition, the first broad-based civil society coalition that formed to address copyright policy issues; and the 10th anniversary of the best practices in fair use, through which a series of creative communities have transformed their approach to this vital copyright doctrine.  These two initiatives represent very different models of engagement in the process of developing balanced copyright laws that provide for significant levels of access to information.  In our final panel, we will look forward to the future of the public interest advocacy in copyright – to both the research agenda that will shape the debate and to the vehicles for public engagement that are currently in use, and may emerge in years to come.
