Digital Copyright Millennium Act and Libraries - April 25, 2017

Suzanne Reymer and Matt Beckstrom lead a discussion about what happens when a patron uses the library's computers or WiFi to download material in voilation of federal copyright laws.  Libraries have responsiblities to copyright holders and to preverve patron privacy under law - and this is one circumstance where those two legal responsiblities can easily collide.  There are no easy right answers here, but libraries should be taking steps to prevent illegal activity while still maintaining access and privacy.   CE: technology  - view the recording here.
