*Blurred Boundaries: Intellectual Property and Networked Sharing of Content

*NISO Virtual Conference, Wednesday, May 22, 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
(Eastern Time)*

What’s currently simmering in the realm of intellectual property? There’s
been talk of filtering technologies, making the Internet less hospitable to
re-use of content and images. There’s been talk of a “link tax”. In an age
when digital media collections may quickly be threatened by obsolescence,
what protections may be extended to an archive’s specialized focus on a
particular format (such as televised news) or delivery via a particular
social media platform?

Researchers seeking to disseminate their work to colleagues have adopted a
variety of academic networks as well as well-branded, subject-specific
archives to house their preprints. Here too there may be a bit of unease in
knowing where the boundaries of appropriate sharing lie. Will this platform
or that demonstrate compliance with a funder’s mandate? Is the work
adequately discoverable? Sometimes the appropriate avenue for sharing is
obvious and without pitfalls; other times, the sharing creates prickling

This session will bring together expert voices with a variety of
perspectives to discuss the challenges, the signposts for appropriate
handling and perhaps even concessions encountered in the usage, protection,
and preservation of digital content.
