W&L Law Professor Sally Wiant will be part of a panel on Copyright Law and Fair Use Rights at the upcoming conference of the Virginia Library Association in Williamsburg this week. Here is a description from the conference program:
More information is available to library users today, right? Not necessarily. Join two well- known copyright law professors/librarians to learn more about copyright law and how fair use rights are being challenged in the digital world. The speakers will discuss the Google book settlement, the Georgia State case, licensing restrictions, claims of copyright in previously considered public domain information, and more. They also will review recent international actions, which likely will influence the actions of Congress and U.S. courts. This program is sponsored by the Virginia Library Association’s Intellectual Freedom Committee.
Sally Wiant is a Professor of Law at Washington & Lee University School of Law and formerly served as the Director of the Law Library.
