Kevin L. Smith (slides)

Judy Ruttenberg (slides)

Join our very first pre-conference focusing on “hot” legal issues of concern to librarians, publishers, and vendors. In this premier installment, Kevin Smith will discuss legal issues/implications of MOOCs (massive open online courses). Next, Bill Hannay will address opportunities and challenges for text and data mining. Finally, Judy Ruttenberg will speak about technological and legal issues for the library and publishing communities in providing access for the print disabled.

Ample time will be allowed for questions and discussion. We will also allow time for the attendees to suggest future legal issues and controversies that they would like to see covered in future pre-conferences.
