Association of American Publisher’s Professional & Scholar’s Publishing Books Committee is bringing guest speakers Terence P. Keegan and David S. Korzenik from the law firm of Miller Korzenik Sommers LLP to discuss When Creative Commons Licenses Create Headaches. This interesting educational event is scheduled for Friday, October 21st from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at the AAP/NY office and via the webinar.

Many online publishers rely on Creative Commons licenses to freely use and distribute images, photographs and other copyrighted material. But compliance with the terms of the licenses is not without its challenges. Publishers could face claims for breach of the license, or even copyright infringement, if they fail to abide by the fluctuating license terms. The meaning of some terms may even be subject to argument.

This presentation will break down the four versions of the Creative Commons licensing suites to highlight the attribution requirements and use limitations that publishers may have to meet under Creative Commons licenses. Discussion will be held around several court cases involving Creative Commons-licensed material.
