On 20th April 2007 the British Computer Society London Office in Covent Garden was base for the 2007 ‘Intellectual Property Rights in E-Learning Workshop/Conference’. The conference was organised by the School of Computing Science at Middlesex University.
David Donald was asked to present at this event by Dr Carlisle George who had seen David present before and thought that he was a more than suitable candidate for the event. Dr Carlisle was previously a barrister and is now a senior lecturer at the School of Computing Science at Middlesex University.
The one day conference brought together several researchers from Middlesex University and other experts in Intellectual Property Rights to speak on IPR related to e-learning.
David spoke about the work done on the Spoken Word and the ‘Obstacles to Accessing the Multimedia Heritage’ that the Spoken Word holds. He spoke widely about the project’s approach to the rights and permissions it holds in partnership with the BBC and various other intellectual property issues including the Spoken Word user license agreement.
David felt that his presentation went very well. He has already received positive feedback form the conference organisers and has been asked to present at future events.
