We are pleased to announce the 5th annual Kraemer Copyright Conference on June 5-6th, 2017 at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs!

This year’s theme will be Copyright Collaborations: Education, Advocacy, and Creation. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for educators (K-12, university, public librarians), students, and legal experts to share knowledge and best practices on U.S. Copyright Law and how it impacts us every day.
