Event Type

Join the University of Michigan Library for a community conversation that explores how copyright impacts our professional lives.

Note: This event is free, but for planning purposes we encourage you to register.

First, Michael Carroll, Professor of Law and Director of the Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property at American University's Washington College of Law and founding board member of Creative Commons, talks about “Sharing and Hoarding Research Data: Copyright, New Federal Funding Requirements and More.” Who owns research data and who cares?

Carroll's talk weaves together a description of the copyright framework that applies automatically to research data as it is generated, compiled or visualized, new requirements likely to emerge from federal funding agencies in response to a new directive from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and the role of informal expectations in scientific disciplines about annotating and sharing or hoarding research data.

Following Carroll's presentation, U-M community members will facilitate breakout sessions to further examine data and copyright issues relevant to our institution. You are encouraged to bring your questions, experiences, and ideas to the discussion.
