FORUM CALL

American copyright law seeks a balance between rights and obligations of =
creators and users of intellectual  property to, in the words of the =
Constitution,  "promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts." Securing =
exclusive rights to their writings gives authors incentives to continue to =
create, while defining those rights and limiting the period of exclusivity =
protect the interests of readers, who are also potential creators. The =
resulting laws that have grown out of this constitutional foundation have =
led to a level of progress of which the Constitutional Framers could only =
have dreamed.

As the medium for expression evolves from the tangible printed book to =
electronic forms of writing,  these changes stretch familiar concepts and =
threaten the balance between author and reader. The practical limits of =
technology, our social understanding of "intellectual property" and the =
value of information, and our institutional and legal framework seem =
inadequate for the electronic era. The 1999 FLICC Forum on Federal =
Information Policies will address how authors, publishers, readers, =
libra-ries, and the government are working to redistribute rights and =
obligations between authors and readers to restore equilibrium in the =
copyright arena.

The Forum will begin with distinguished speakers from the U.S. Copyright =
Office and the Association of American Publishers who will review the =
principles underlying American copyright law and consider how  the =
electronic age is testing these principles. Next,  the Forum will examine =
the specific challenges to our copyright regime identified in the =
Copyright Office's Project Looking Forward, namely, the new subject =
matter, new uses, and growing potential for decentralized infringement =
characteristic of the electronic medium.

Forces of technology, social and market behavior, policy and law are all =
responsible for the shift in equilibrium and are the very same tools that =
will restore it. The afternoon session will open with an update on how the =
law is being revisited as the new Digital Millennium Copyright Act, other =
legislative initiatives, and the proposal for a new section of the Uniform =
Commercial Code on licenses. Formal changes in the legal framework may =
affect everything from library database services to shrink-wrap licenses =
for mass market software.

These technological and legal changes manifest  themselves throughout =
library operations=AFin technical services, systems, and public services. =
The afternoon session continues by illustrating how concepts such as the =
first sale doctrine, licensing, fair use, and other library, archival, and =
educational exemptions in the copyright law play out in today's collection =
development, acquisitions, resource sharing, and preservation activities. =
An industry speaker will  then identify and explain the technology =
available to  manage copyrighted resources, protect works, assess charges, =
and limit and monitor access.

Afternoon speakers will highlight how government readers and authors must =
accustom themselves to the new electronic intellectual property environment=
, and how to develop a formal agency policy on copyright. Speakers will =
also describe how an agency might carry
out and enforce such a policy and what the policy should include. The =
Forum will then conclude with an in-depth look at one such issue=AFgovernme=
nt Web publishing and the issues it raises, including linking, framing, =
connecting to potentially infringing sites, and securing permissions.
