[InetBib] CO:OPyright. Challenges and Practices of Copyright and Licensing of Digital Cultural Heritage (April 12 & 13, University of Graz, AT)

Dear colleagues,

I am delighted to invite you to the conference

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