IS2K7 Interview with Michael Hemment

Michael Hemment is Research Librarian and Head of Scholarly Research Initiatives at Widener Library, here at Harvard University. Recently, MediaBerkman producer Colin Rhinesmith sat down with Michael to discuss a number of pressing issues in the research field.

Download the audio podcast (time: 22:55).

In this Internet & Society 2007 podcast, Michael discusses the available means of research at the University and how the sharing of information will change greatly from the way we understand it today. Some of the specific topics include copyright, fair use, tagging, digital imaging, open source materials, and more. All of these are central to the question of the role of University in Cyberspace – the theme of this year’s Internet & Society Conference, Knowledge Beyond Authority.

There are many ways to be involved in this discussion. You can listen to the interview, visit the conference website to add a question for the June 1st conference, register to attend, and help us answer: How should universities relate to intellectual property? With respect to university knowledge creation how interconnected with the public realm should our “library of information” be?

Wendy Seltzer, “Sacked by Copyright”

When Berkman Fellow and Chilling Effects founder Wendy Seltzer posted a Super Bowl clip to YouTube, she thought she’d get to teach a bit about copyright — the clip was the NFL’s warning that “Any other use of this telecast or of any pictures, descriptions, or accounts of the game without the NFL’s consent, is prohibited.” In series of DMCA notices, copyright takedowns, counter-notifications, and put-backs, Seltzer has found the process more convoluted than even she anticipated. Join the discussion at the Berkman Center about the free expression stakes in Viacom v. YouTube: copyright, safe-harbors, and Chilling Effects.

Copyright and Access to Knowledge

Click To Play Video

Mary Wong of Franklin Pierce Law Center joins Berkman Center guests, fellows, and staff to discuss the growing discourse around such topics as “the commons,” “free culture,” and “open content.”

Professor Wong addresses the extent to which these terms are rhetoric or signals of change; how “openness” can be stunted by lack of clarity in copyright standards; and what the future may hold in light of technological advancements.

Opening Up to Open Access: Part Two

Gavin Yamey on “Opening Up to Open Access: What Can Other Disciplines Learn from the Sciences?”

Download part two of the audio podcast (time: 23:10).

What can academics do to ensure that their research results are included in the growing “knowledge commons?” Gavin Yamey MD, Senior Editor of PLoS Medicine and Consulting Editor of PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases, shares his experiences in the open access movement and explores possible avenues for its expansion to other fields, with a focus on the social sciences and humanities.

The Public Library of Science, an international non-profit grassroots movement of scientists and physicians, is working to change the status quo by campaigning to make the biomedical literature a freely available global public good. PLoS now publishes 7 open access journals, and is urging traditional biomedical publishers to adopt more socially responsive practices. Will other fields follow in their footsteps?

This event is sponsored by the Berkman Center and Harvard College Free Culture and will take place Wednesday, March 14 at 7:30pm in Sever Hall Room 202 at Harvard University. It is a lead up event to the 2007 Internet & Society Conference, which will be held on the Harvard Campus on June 1, 2007.
