The lifecycle of data curation – from its creation and compilation, to its publication, preservation, and possible reuse – raises important intellectual property issues.

This workshop will provide an overview of the creation and management of data, followed by an introduction to the basic provisions of copyright law that determine the ownership and protection (or lack thereof) of research data and what other researchers can do with it. Participants in the workshop will gain a critical understanding of the intellectual property issues in data curation, including the current state of the law, and the strengths and weaknesses of licenses for the reuse of data from Open Data Commons and Creative Commons.
