Join the University of Michigan Library and Open.Michigan for a community conversation that explores how copyright impacts our professional lives. “Copyright Camp 2013: Who owns research data, and who cares?” takes place Thursday, June 20, 1:00-5:00pm in the Hatcher Library.

The keynote presenter is Michael Carroll, Professor of Law and Director of the Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property at American University’s Washington College of Law and founding board member of Creative Commons.

Copyright Camp will also feature a series of breakout sessions, facilitated by U-M community members, to further examine data and copyright issues relevant to our institution. You are encouraged to bring your questions, experiences, and ideas to the discussion.
