The International Framework and the Reality of Copyright Determination: Copyright Developments in the US, the EU and WIPO and Briefing on the Copyright Review Management System (CRMS)

How can engagement in law, policy, and practical work best be utilized for the benefit of DPLA’s projects and expansion? This presentation will provide a focused overview of recent developments in copyright law from both sides of the Atlantic relevant to digitization and access to digital materials (whether online, on library premises, or e-lending). This panel will consider key policy developments coming from the US, the EU and the international arena (WIPO) pointing to a promising momentum for the future of accessibility to digitized works. We will also consider the Copyright Review Management System (CRMS) as a practical path in the context of current law and policy and as a way we can push boundaries of knowledge. As an IMLS-funded cooperative effort, CRMS provided a methodology for identifying the copyright status of books in HathiTrust. Based at the University of Michigan Library, CRMS has worked for the past 8 years to develop a copyright determination framework with 16 partners in the US and Canada resulting in a forthcoming CRMS Toolkit and consideration by HathiTrust about future activity in copyright determination work.
