Last year’s Copyright Camp was such a great success we’re doing it again this year with the Copyright Office and MPublishing!
It’s still an unconference, but with a bit more organization this time around, with a combination of breakout sessions, a great speaker and some other fun activities. Deborah Wythe, manager of the Brooklyn Museum of Art’s Digital Collections and Services department, will be joining us this year to discuss why the Brooklyn Museum of Art recently decided to adopt Creative Commons licenses for many of the photos of their collections.
The Open.Michigan team will be on-hand helping people understand the basics of open sharing, including how to create, use and share open content. We’ll also be featuring our very own version of Open.Michigan OERopoly and an Antiques Roadshow style “Open Content Roadshow” where you can bring an “item” (like a presentation, publication, photo or other copyrightable material) for our panel of experts to review and make recommendations for making this item open and adaptable.
Check out last year’s photos to get an idea of what Copyright Camp is all about and make sure to register if you’re interested in attending. You can also check out the Copyright Office’s official announcement for more info. There’s definitely going to be good food, good conversation and maybe even some extra goodies for participants!
