Columbia University in the City of New York and the Office of Information Technology Policy (OITP) of the American Library Association are delighted to welcome you to “Correcting Course: Rebalancing Copyright for Libraries in the National and International Arenas.”

“Correcting Course” offers a high-level briefing on developments in the United States and in international venues affecting the balanced interpretation and application of copyright. It promotes a renewed activism in support of fair use and the full complement of copyright exceptions and limitations which enable libraries to serve their communities. This conference will bring together influential and committed thinkers and activists who view a balanced application of copyright and the advancement of fair use as fundamental to the future health of libraries and the communities they serve. The conference is supported by funding from the MacArthur Foundation.

We begin with dinner on Thursday, May 5, 2005 and end with lunch on Saturday, May 7, 2005. Several attractive venues have been reserved at Columbia University for the conference sessions and New York City, of course, offers an exciting backdrop for the important work of the attendees. This schedule will enable participants to spend a weekend in New York and take advantage of its remarkable cultural and entertainment opportunities.

Please note that the registration for conference observers is now closed.

Thank you for joining us at this galvanizing event.
