Use of professional information and copyright compliance: Challenges for research driven companies
Kim Zwollo (RightsDirect, Neatherlands)
How do international copyright rules govern the reuse of scientific and other types of content in the corporate environment? Which are the most outstanding trends in copyright law worldwide affecting both the creation of scientific and technical information and its use in businesses? What are the main copyright-related challenges for content users and scientific information professionals, and how can research companies provide their researchers and other employees with easy and copyright-compliant ways to access and share content?

The presentation will provide answers to these questions. Its first section will give an overview of the international framework of copyright with special emphasis on European regulations, followed by an analysis of the various trends in copyright law and business models that will shape the landscape of scientific information dissemination and use in the coming years. The second section will address the ways in which scientific and other types of content is used in multinational companies, with particular reference to digital information workflows in research driven industries, and the challenges from the copyright perspective. Finally, the third section will examine some of the solutions that corporations can apply to ensure that information sharing practices are smooth, efficient and copyright compliant.
