Copyright / Fair Use Salon

Sunday, April 29 from 5-7pm at the NYC AIDS Housing Network in Brooklyn.

Copyright paranoia is infecting us all these days. The concepts of "fair use," "first sale," other free expression and library-friendly defenses are how we keep that paranoia in check. Come learn from each other's questions, confusions, and strategies in a discussion moderated by Laura Quilter (information law attorney and former librarian). As library activists, how can we protect the public's rights, educate ourselves, and meaningfully effect change?

80A Fourth Avenue, b/t St. Marks & Bergen Sts. Take the 2,3,4,5,Q,B,D,M,N,R train to Pacific or Atlantic. Beware of weekend subway disruptions.

The discussion is free and open to all. However we will solicit small donations for NYCAHN to thank them for hosting us. The fair use salon will be preceded by a short Radical Reference meeting.
