|Copyright Act||Jessica Whyte|
The Copyright Act is now up for review and I think we should talk about organizing any letters or responses (e.g. coordinating examples of digital locks inhibiting our work)
Background Information for discussion goo.gl/ys9D7k
Key area of interest to us: there is no legal exemption for digital locks. This is a change from how analogue material is dealt with and as a community we might want to bring that to the attention of the review board, others participating in the review, etc.
Anyone interested is welcome to participate in the google doc.

Comments: we should, but I'm not sure we have capacity within the community.
York and ODC would be willing to circulate for interest and would contribute to a draft.
