CILIP Copyright Conference 2020 in association with Naomi Korn Associates
CILIP Copyright Conference 2020 in association with Naomi Korn Associates

Thursday 30 April



Following a turbulent period of Brexit and its potential impact on UK copyright law, a new EU Copyright Directive and important developments in UK copyright law implementation, practice and licensing, it is essential you understand how these will impact library and information professionals, your organisation and the users of the services you provide.

This year’s Copyright Conference is an ideal and unique opportunity for all librarians, archivists and information professionals to update their knowledge and professional practice in this crucial area. Additionally, it will appeal to those who want to update their general copyright, licensing and publishing knowledge.

Having worked so hard at putting this programme together we have spent the last couple of weeks looking at alternative ways to deliver this conference to you with the same, high quality content and opportunities to participate, and we have made the decision that we are able to do this online via Zoom. Each session will be slightly shorter, to take into account the fact that you are likely to be at home with other responsibilities. There will be more short breaks, and more opportunities to ask questions.

Nearer to the time you will be sent a link with instructions that will take you our live event, chaired by Naomi Korn. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as meet with other delegates in virtual Break Out rooms during the lunch break.

Delegates will also have access to a recording of the event that you can refer to at a later date.

The programme has yet again been developed in association with Naomi Korn Associates and Naomi Korn will be chairing the conference.
