     COPYRIGHT UTOPIA: Alternative Visions, Methods & Policies
          May 21-23, 2007
     Marriott Inn & Conference Center
         Adelphi, Maryland

What would copyright utopia look like? Do you envision an island
paradise surrounded by oceans of free content lapping at your feet? Is
every piece of data or content freely and fully available--no
restrictions, no fees, and no questions asked? Or is everything under
lock and key with access granted only to a privileged membership? Or do
you wish to live somewhere in between? As colleges and universities
continue to make decisions managing third party copyrighted works, let's
pause and ask difficult questions of our legal structure and human
needs. What methods and policies would best serve students, faculty,
publishers, and the academic enterprise?
