Intellectual Property Rights and Digital Preservation, Bristol 21 Nov: member registration now open

Added on 30 September 2011

Pre-Registration is now open 'Intellectual Property Rights and Digital Preservation', a briefing day sponsored jointly by the Digital Preservation Coalition and JISC Digital Media, in Bristol on 21 November 2011.

Digital preservation helps to deliver lasting impact from highly prized and valuable digital resources. This is often understood as a technical challenge but experience shows that a poor fit between technology, processes and regulations constrains preservation actions and significantly inhibit the benefits which long-term access ought to deliver. Operating within a complicated and evolving legal and regulatory landscape, the digital preservation community needs a clear understanding of what it is permitted to do and what risks might inhere within technical processes like format shifting, migration, bit replication and emulation. Foremost among these challenges is the management, protection and evolution of intellectual property rights.
