Abstract

Public domain information has long been acknowledged as a means of ensuring a knowledgeable citizenry, promoting the advancement of the arts and sciences, and advancing economic development. However, the public domain has come under increased pressures, including copyright extensions, database directives, commercialization of information, and national security interests, as we move into a global information economy. This session, sponsored by SIG IFP and SIG III will address these pressures from a number of different national and disciplinary viewpoints.
