NINCH ANNOUNCEMENT News on Networking Cultural Heritage Resources from across the Community August 12, 2002
PLEASE DISTRIBUTE WIDELY
NINCH COPYRIGHT TOWN MEETING: ATLANTA Presented in collaboration with the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Literature, Communication, and Culture "Media Issues in the Digital Age: Copyright Strategies for Education and Culture" http://www.ninch.org/copyright/2002/atlanta.html
* * * Monday September 30, 9am-5pm Free of Charge * Open to All Registration Required: http://streamingquill.com/contract/NINCH This program is made possible by a grant from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and support from the Graduate School of the Georgia Institute of Technology.
The 20th NINCH Copyright Town Meeting will be hosted in Atlanta by the Georgia Institute of Technology, The Ivan Allen College and its School of Literature, Communication, and Culture. It will be held at the Institute's Student Center Ballroom on Monday September 30, 9am-5pm. The meeting is open to all and is free of charge, but registration is required.
Although copyright law was originally written with text documents in mind, the Internet and its increasingly wide bandwidth capabilities are demanding changes. Napster dramatized the issues and as a result commercial companies are scrambling to adjust their business models. Recent decisions about license fees for radio webcasting, concerns about movie piracy and the arrival of the TEACH Act have brought into focus many of the media issues that have to be solved.
What are the implications of these issues for the educational and cultural communities in the management, use and re-use of media online? Are film studios so concerned about piracy that they will not give permission for classroom use? Is licensing the only answer for digital access to media and will it be prohibitively expensive for teachers and researchers? Is there a way to get automated permissions? Is Fair Use still a viable option for online use of media? What other issues are preventing the online distribution of our rich heritage in dance?
Building on a 2001 Copyright Town Meeting held at the New York Public Library, the Atlanta Town Meeting will examine the challenges and consider practical strategies for taking advantage of the digital promise using media online.
Program The local organizing committee has assembled a first-rate team of speakers taking advantage of the rich legal and media talent available in the Atlanta region, together with national experts in the fields of copyright and media law.
The meeting will open with two internationally known copyright experts, L. Ray Patterson and Joseph Beck, giving their views on the key digital issues that have serious implications for the deployment and use of sound and moving images online. These will include the TEACH Act and the recent webcasting licensing fee decision, among others. Patterson is universally known for his classic work, Copyright in Historical Perspective and Joseph Beck is now probably best known as the lead counsel for the defendent in "The Wind Done Gone" case.
The major part of the meeting will be divided between Film, Television, the Performing Arts and Sound, each panel taking a different perspective on the issues of access to material, getting permission to use and re-use material, and what is permissible and fair use in research, in the classroom and online.
As with all NINCH Copyright Town Meetings there will be time for questions and discussions throughout the program and the session will end with a FORUM session for all participants

Brown Media Archives and Peabody Awards Collection, University of Georgia * Philip Auslander, Professor, School of Literature, Communication, and Culture, Georgia Tech * Joseph Beck, Partner, Kilpatrick Stockton, LLP; Adjunct Professor of Copyright Law and of the First Amendment, Emory University * Kathy Christensen, Vice-President, News Archives and Research, CNN * Paul Gherman, University Librarian, Vanderbilt University * Jerry Goldman, Professor of Political Science, Northwestern University. * TyAnna K.

The NINCH Copyright Town Meetings seek to balance expert opinion and audience participation on the basics of copyright law, the implications of copyright online, recent changes in copyright law and practice, and practical issues related to the networking of cultural heritage materials.
