Session Description: The ever changing landscape of technological developments, access strategies, digitization initiatives and intersection with copyright law/policy has often presented image managers with challenging copyright issues and perplexing solutions. Much of the historical conversation about copyright in the image management arena has centered on the role of the federal copyright statute and how image mangers can make policy choices within this framework. This fundamental statutory approach in addressing copyright through policy development is helpful. However, beyond the statutory considerations are the application of community practices, risk management strategies and an understanding of pertinent judicial decisions.

This presentation will review recent developments and current information, such as the Visual Resources Association: Statement on the Fair Use of Images for Teaching, Research and Study, and pertinent judicial decisions pertaining to the use of images, with planned audience interaction with Q&A.
