This interactive workshop will give participants a grounding in international and foreign copyright issues that are relevant for DPLA contributors. We'll talk about assessing the U.S. public domain status of foreign works, how U.S. and foreign law apply to collaborative digitization projects with participants inside and outside the U.S., and when online projects by U.S.-based institutions subject those institutions to jurisdiction outside the U.S. (spoiler alert: they mostly don't). Then, participants will collaborate on practice questions involving these concepts. This workshop is designed for people who work with digital collections and have some previous experience with copyright law.
