NMM Professional Development - Entertainment Law & Order: Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and the Library Environment
From access to preservation, librarians across the country have been perplexed by demand for content that's available only through consumer streaming. Copyright law permits libraries to do what they have always done with physical collections under the first sale doctrine: lend and provide access. How can libraries uphold missions to acquire, make accessible, and preserve content when that important content is not available for sale? Panelists will review the current state of consumer-licensed content, and offer suggestions for action and remedies.
