I am delighted to invite you to the conference
CO:OPyright. Challenges and Practices of Copyright and Licensing of Digital
April 12 & 13, 2017
University of Graz, RESOWI (Universitätsstraße 15)
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 (Austria).
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.
The conference includes three pre-conference workshops and a full day of
presentations by both legal experts and cultural heritage experts.
Please find the detailed programme online at
Participation in the Conference and the Workshops is FREE, but registration is
required. Please register at:
Looking forward to seeing you in Graz!
