The Influence of Intellectual Property Rights Over Distance Education

Tuesday, January 1, 2002

Abstract

As more higher education institutions offer online courses, the debate still rages over how content owners are to be fairly compensated and how library and higher education institutions are expected to prevent unauthorized distribution of content. Panelists will discuss the current status of this debate, how campus policymakers and legal counsel are cooperating with content providers (and avoiding potential lawsuits), and what the federal government has done in the wake of the DMCA and Congressional Web-Based Education Commission Report.
