  17. 17. Copyright policy • Is responsibility still correctly defined? • Is Information Services’ role still appropriate? • Is the copyright officer role still valid? • Is the risk management section still valid? • Should we make explicit reference to copyright exceptions? • Do we want to change or add to the Licences section? E.g. relationship between licence and exception • Is the copyright notices section still valid? • Should it mention ownership of copyright?
  18. 18. Copyright Literacy Strategy • What is the vision? • How does it map to the University Strategy? • What time period should it cover? • Are there particular objectives for us to aim for? • If so, how should we measure them? • Should there be a steering/working group?
  19. 19. Next steps • Communications • Next meeting • Anything else?
