Charleston Library Conference 

Mar 29, 2021

Audio from Part Two of a keynote of the 2020 Charleston Library Conference, presented by Pam Samuelson, Richard M. Sherman Distinguished Professor of Law, Berkeley Law School, in Berkeley, CA, and moderated by Ann Okerson, Senior Advisor, Center for Research Libraries

In Part Two of the Long Arm Panel, Pam talks with us about what Controlled Digital Lending is, institutions and people who have endorsed it, the position statement and white paper that explains what the rationale behind it is, the Author's Alliance support for CDL as a Fair Use,  Internet Archive's Open Library as an example of CDL and CDL in the context of the Publisher's lawsuit against Internet Archive, the lawsuit status report, is it fair use or not fair use and risk mitigation strategies.

Also featured in this presentation is a tribute to the late Bill Hannay, Partner at Schiff Hardin, who was such a big part of the Long Arm Panel for many years.
