Blurred Boundaries: Intellectual Property and Networked Sharing of Content

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

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.

Here's what just one of those speakers will be addressing:

*Stewarding the Infrastructure*

*Intellectual Property Challenges Across Digital Humanities, Digital
Scholarship, & Open Science*

*A view from the Library*

As librarians embrace a more facilitative role as stewards of the scholarly
information environment, new responsibilities are emerging. As key
contributors to the critical research infrastructure, librarians, curators,
archivists, developers, and other specialists are working to advance issues
related to digital preservation, data reuse and discovery, and
interoperability via open architectures. This session will look broadly at
intellectual property challenges across the domains of digital humanities,
digital scholarship, and open science and highlight opportunities for
community engagement and some possibilities to help propel science and
scholarship forward.
