NLLD Recap Copyright for Multimedia MOOC

Because H.R. 1695, the major copyright bill of the moment, only just made it through the house, and thus hasn’t yet arrived in the Senate, this year’s National Library Legislative Day was a lot less copyright-focused than I anticipated. If you work in libraries, you should definitely think about going next year: it’s a great way to meet politically-minded colleagues from your state! Even if you don’t work in libraries, you might be interested in watching the archived version of the live stream of the event, which includes a keynote address by Hina Shamsi of the ACLU and expert commentary on the issue briefs I linked to last week. Carrie Russell of the American Library Association’s Office for Information Technology Policy appears to talk about copyright at the 1:12:00 mark of the video.


Moving on: people who have been reading this blog for awhile will remember that last year I took a Coursera MOOC called Copyright for Educators & Librarians and blogged about it. I’m going to do the same thing with its sequel, a course called Copyright for Multimedia which starts on Monday and runs through June 11. Hit me up via email if you’d like to take the course “with” someone! Alternatively, I’ll post reviews every two weeks like I did last time if you’re not sure whether or not it’s worth your time.
