    In association with the College Art Association's Committee on Intellectual
    Property, NINCH presents its 21st Copyright Town Meeting as part of the
    2003 College Art Association Annual Conference.

    The advantages of digital publishing online seem clear to many authors,
    largely because of the potential for reaching wide and often new audiences.
    However, owners of images and many publishers are not so convinced about
    the benefits of moving online and some fear losing economic control of
    their copyrighted material.

    This NINCH Copyright Town Meeting will survey the rights challenges of
    publishing art history and art criticism online. The impact of the TEACH
    Act (Technology, Education and Copyright Harmonization Act) on digital
    publishing will also be discussed as Distance Education products fit well
    within the spectrum that includes both traditional publishing and
    class-room teaching.

    The meeting brings together authors, publishers, museum administrators,
    legal counsel, and culture and media historians to discuss their
    experiences and provide their advice for moving forward. As with all NINCH
    Copyright Town Meetings, the audience is encouraged to participate and
    ample time is reserved for that purpose.

    Featured speakers:

    * Petra Chu, Professor of Art, Seton Hall University; Founding Managing
    Editor, Nineteenth-Century Art Worldwide
    * Susan Chun, General Manager for Electronic Information Planning,
    Metropolitan Museum of Art
    * Robert Clarida, Partner, Cowan, Liebowitz & Latman, P.C.
    * Kenneth Crews, Professor of Law, Indiana University and Director,
    Indiana University Copyright Management Center
    * Jeffrey Cunard, Partner, Debevoise & Plimpton; CAA Legal Counsel
    * Christine Sundt, Visual Resources Curator and Professor of Art,
    University of Oregon
    * Peter Trippi, Executive Editor, Nineteenth-Century Art Worldwide
    * Siva Vaidhyanathan, Assistant Professor of Culture and Communication,
    New York University

    This program is related to two other publishing programs at the CAA
    conference: "Problems of Publishing for Tenure in the Arts and Art
    History," (Friday, February 21, noon-1:30 p.m); and "Clearing Rights and
    Permissions: How To, Why To, When To," (Saturday, February 22, 12:30-2:00
    p.m). For further details, see
    http://www.studiolo.org/IP/2003NYTM/index.htm and

    The NINCH Copyright Town Meetings seek to balance expert opinion and
    audience participation on the basics of copyright law, the implications of
    copyright online, recent changes in copyright law and practice, and
    practical issues related to the networking of cultural heritage materials.
    The program will include plenty of time for audience questions, comments
    and discussion. For information on all NINCH Copyright Town meetings, see

    In addition to papers on these topics, proposals for papers and/or panels on other topics within the framework of the "State Technology - Technology and Culture" theme are welcomed.
