The information age has given birth to a maze of new laws, regulations and judicial rulings that have a direct impact on the everyday
work of information professionals at all levels, in both the government and the private sector. New policies are being formulated all the time. How do you keep up with it all? Join us for this entertaining and
interactive workshop aimed at helping participants gain a basic understanding of the essential civil and criminal laws that every information professional should know about. The session will also cover important legal
resources—print and electronic—that will help you stay current with the legal developments in the future.
The scope and specific provisions of extant law relevant to the management and use of information,
including recent and proposed changes in the areas of copyright, e-publishing, e-commerce, protection of proprietary and trade secret information, classification and declassification policies, censorship, and privacy.
