Copyright Utopia:
Alternative Visions, Methods & Policies
May 21-23, 2007
UMUC Inn & Conference Center, Adelphi, Maryland

Will the efforts of organizations like Creative Commons create a more

licensing the only alternative to copyright? Should alternative methods
work within the current legal structure? What would your copyright
utopia look like?... Will your copyright future be Orwellian, live
within the copyright Matrix, or be a Brave New World?

This year's symposium promises to be very thought provoking. Join noted
scholars and practitioners as they discuss the current state of
copyright nationally and internationally. The Pre-Conferences will
