ORLANDO, Fla.—Have a question about copyright policies? Library copyright experts will be available during the 2016 American Library Association’s (ALA) Annual Conference in Orlando, Fla., to respond to vexing copyright questions about licensing, fair use, electronic reserves, using music, images and video content, and more. Join copyright leaders during the interactive session “Ask Us Anything: Copyright Open House,” at which participants will have the opportunity to engage copyright experts on all of their copyright concerns. The program will include a late breaking copyright policy update from copyright leaders. The session will be a great opportunity to meet copyright geeks keen on helping academic, public and school librarians. The session is co-sponsored by the ALA Committee on Legislation (COL) Copyright Subcommittee.
