Legal issues in the use of technology in art, design and media studies
JISC Legal is currently looking at the ways in which it supports subject areas, and to this purpose, is considering the particular legal issues which arise in relation to the use of technology in art, design and media studies in UK colleges and universities.
If you don’t know about JISC Legal, we’re a free-at-the-point-of-use advisory service assisting UK further and higher education in legal issues which arise in relation to information and communication technologies. More details about us can be found at www.jisclegal.ac.uk .
In doing this work in your subject area, we don’t want to sit in isolation guessing the issues which might be most important to you. We would rather hear what sort of issues are on your mind. These might concern a particular area of law, such as intellectual property law, or a new technology, such as social networking sites, or a new use of a technology in teaching or research, such as the creation of virtual art galleries in Second Life. We’d like to hear!
You can feed back to us through your Subject Centre by emailing email@example.com , or directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org , or record your feedback on our dedicated answering machine on 0141 548 5759. If you’d prefer to speak to us in person, call 0141 548 4939. To give you some incentive, all suggestions of law and technology issues will be entered in a prize draw for a USB graphics tablet to connect up to your PC or Mac. The draw will close 30 January 2009.
