The House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Courts, the Internet, and Intellectual Property is holding a hearing on the proposed Orphan Works legislation tomorrow, March 13, at 10:00AM eastern. These hearings are usually both webcast live and archived on the committee site.
The LITA Legislation and Regulation Committee is charged with keeping LITA members informed about legislative and regulatory issues in telecommunications and information technology that impact our libraries. The LITA Blog is the vehicle we have chosen to accomplish this. The Legislation and Regulation category will not duplicate the ALA Washington Office District Dispatch, but will include selected postings from that publication. We will also provide news from her sources such as the Electronic Freedom Foundation and EDUCAUSE. We encourage LITA members to set up a feed for the Legislation and Regulation category to keep current on these issues. And if you can suggest other resources, please let us know.
