Hosting digital collections, such as those aggregated in DPLA, comes with a variety of copyright challenges. This workshop will prepare participants to address those challenges for the collections they administer. It will outline the various rationales, under copyright law, for hosting digital collections (e.g., materials are in the public domain, a rightsholder has given permission, or hosting the collection falls under fair use). It will also go over when it is appropriate to grant permission for others to use items in a digital collection, and how to use Creative Commons licenses and rights statements to simplify that work. In the second half of the workshop, participants will work in small groups on copyright decisions for a hypothetical digital collection. The full group will then reconvene to discuss those decisions. This workshop is designed for people who administer digital collections and have some previous experience with copyright law.
