"Know Your Rights: Who Really Owns Your Scholarly Works?"

The Scholarly Communication Program of Columbia University Libraries/Information Services has recently made available the video “Know Your Rights: Who Really Owns Your Scholarly Works?” (thanks to Charles Bailey’s posting on DigitalKoans).

This is the announcement accompanying the video:

In this panel discussion, experts on copyright law and scholarly publishing discuss how scholars and researchers can take full advantage of opportunities afforded by digital technology in today's legal environment, and suggest ways to advocate for positive change. The panelists are Heather Joseph, who has been Executive Director of the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC); Michael Carroll, Visiting Professor of Law at American University's Washington College of Law and a founding member of the Board of Directors of Creative Commons; and Director of the Columbia University Copyright Advisory Office Kenneth Crews, whose research focuses on copyright issues, particularly as they relate to the needs of scholarship at the university.
