Event: Freedom of Information and Copyright – What Information Professionals Need to Know

UKeIG - UK eInformation Group have released full details of their January, Freedom on Information Meeting, Two Pillars of Wisdom: Freedom of Information and Copyright – What Information Professionals Need to Know. This will be held at CILIP Headquarters on Wednesday, 12th January 2005. Costs (including lunch and refreshments): UKeIG members £130 + VAT (£152.75); others £160 + VAT (£188.00)

This event is aimed at information professionals, for whom both freedom of information and copyright are fundamental areas and it deals with access to and use of information with Freedom of information. Pertinent to all as the legislation expected to be fully in force in the UK for 1st January 2005. Half of this one day meeting will provide a thorough overview of the FOI framework (including the right of access to information, exemptions, publications schemes etc.). It will also consider its application in a number of specific areas such as unpublished materials and archives, FOI and contracts/procurement issues, third party intellectual property rights, managing FOI requirements in the organisation and more. The second main area to be covered by the meeting is copyright. Major changes have occurred in UK copyright law in the last 18 months and taking stock of these changes and providing a detailed overview of the current copyright framework in the UK will be an important part of this event.

This course will be presented by Laurence Bebbington, Law Librarian and Information Services Copyright Officer at the University of Nottingham and Tim Padfield, Copyright Officer, Curator of Photographs and Secretary of the Lord Chancellor's Advisory Council on National Records and Archives at the National Archives, Kew.
