Copyright Committee

Chairs: Alan Munshower
On Twitter: @AMIACopyright

Membership on the AMIA Copyright Committee is open to all AMIA Members. New, student and international members are especially encouraged to join. The Committee seeks to facilitate all discussions on copyright within AMIA, through the AMIA listserv, web site, the “Moving Image,” the “Reel Thing,” the annual conferences, and partnerships with outside groups.

The Copyright Committee provides AMIA members a forum from which to draw knowledge and exchange ideas and provides access to the full range of voices on copyright in the field.  The Committee is a source of up-to-date news so that the membership may stay abreast of copyright issues and help to define issues before they get defined for us. The Copyright Committee recognizes both the importance and the difficulty of providing relevant information on both U.S. and international copyright law.
