Notes available from EC conference on copyright, DRM

April 10th, 2007 by Kaitlin Thaney

Two participants of the recent conference held by the European Commission have made their presentations and notes available to Science Commons. The two-day conference entitled “Scientific Publishing in the European Research Area – Access, Dissemination, and Preservation in the Digital Age” was held this past February in Brussels.

The notes from Jamie Watt (Intellectual Property Advisor, Heriot-Watt University) and Wilma Mossink (copyright and publishing agreements expert, legal adviser to SURF Foundation) can be found here, adding to the array of resources already linked to off of the event’s Web page. The notes from Watt and powerpoint presentation from Mossink reflect on a parallel workshop called “Copyright and Digital Rights Management.”

Science Commons’ John Wilbanks was also a part of this workshop and presented the report on copyrights and DRM. To access that presentation, click here. For more information about the conference and this workshop, we encourage you to visit our March 21st post.

UPDATE: Christine Reid (Solicitor, Oxford) has also made her notes available from this workshop.
