A surge in legislation and lawsuits on the copyright status of state legal materials has raised concerns about the principles of open government and the free accessibility and use of these materials. The goal of the conference is to bring together legal information professionals, policymakers, copyright experts, and others to explore policy and practical issues related to copyrighted state legal materials and discuss possible solutions to ensure more state legal information is in the public domain.
Cosponsored by AALL and Boston University School of Law”
