Technological innovations in the 21st century have resulted in a digital revolution in the publishing and information industries. In response to these digital challenges, the U.S. Copyright Office has considered significant policy and regulatory changes in recent years, which may affect many players in the information and knowledge service industries, from publishers, content providers, and copyright owners to information consumers, such as the libraries and information professionals.

In this session, you will hear a lively discussion and stimulating dialog presented by a panel of copyright attorneys, law school and information science professors and industry leaders on the latest proposals on U.S. copyright law and the current and future impacts on all parties in the information supply chain, particularly library and information science professionals. #digitalcopyright
