"CO:OPyright: Challenges and Practices of Copyright and Licensing of
Digital Cultural Heritage"

Conference at the University of Graz

April 12/13, 2017


The conference is hosted by the Centre for Information Modelling -
Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and the Institute of the
Foundations of Law, Section 'Law and ICT' at the University of Graz


In the age of digital information technology and the constant
availability of information through the Internet, it is not only
important to have democratic access to knowledge, but also essential to
consider the potential that lies in the critical production and
expansion of knowledge.

The CO:OP – short for Community as Opportunity: the creative archives'
and users' network – co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the
European Union aims to strengthen and promote the co-operation between
institutions preserving our common cultural heritage and the general public.


Of particular interest and concern to cultural heritage institutions are
issues of copyright on, provision of and access to digitized material.
There is a recognizable political drive in the European Union to
facilitate public access to cultural heritage – and data in general –
hosted at public institutions. However, the lack of  legal harmonization
and the often unclear national legislations on the use and provision of
resources by public cultural  heritage or scientific institutions has
been prohibiting a much broader engagement between the general public
and its own cultural heritage.


This conference invites:

a. legal experts to present contributions on the legal framework
concerning digital cultural heritage resources on a national or
international level, the European and international conditions,
political developments and innovative approaches to improve the
situation on the use and provision of such resources,

b. experts and curators from cultural heritage institutions to share
their best - and worst! - practice examples with projects that had to
deal with copyright and licensing as exemplary showcases for the CO:OP
community at large. 

These two different perspectives on the topic will be presented in
consecutive sessions of 20-minute papers on April 13 and brought
together in a Panel Discussion with stakeholders from cultural heritage
institutions, the legal academic community and representatives of
funding bodies and political entities at the end of the conference.


Pre-Conference Workshops on April 12 will provide hands-on sessions on
pertinent licensing tools, Open GLAM, and the introduction of a
Guidelines and Best Practices document regarding the core topics of the
conference which will serve as one of the deliverables and milestones of
the CO:OP project.


Please submit your abstracts (of up to 800 words), and a short biography
of the author(s), to:  <zim at uni-graz.at>by January 23, 2017.

The submissions will be peer reviewed and the review results returned by
February 13, 2017.
