In the digital age, everyone is a publisher or a maker or a creator. With the success and popularity of last year's series, VCU Libraries, in concert with the VCU School of the Arts, again presents a series for 2016–2017 on the nuances of copyright for artists, designers and art scholars. Presenter VCU University Counsel Madelyn Wessel is an authoritative voice on the complex intersection of creators' and copyright-holders' rights with creative and scholarly expression. She has presented to many university audiences as well as to groups including the Visual Resources Association and the Art Libraries Society of North America. Wessel is also a senior assistant attorney general for the Commonwealth of Virginia. Previously, as associate general counsel at the University of Virginia, her practice included intellectual-property law, FOIA, technology and libraries. She received her J.D. from Boston University. Wessel is up-to-date on how copyright touches creation, innovation, invention and scholarship and how scholarly and creative work products should be protected. The events in the series are free and open to all, but please register. Lunch will be provided. Parking is available for a fee in the West Broad Street, West Main Street and West Cary Street parking decks. If special accommodations are needed, please call the VCU Libraries Events Office at (804) 828-0593.
