The SPN Community Engagement Collaborative occasionally invites our colleagues across professional and disciplinary communities to participate in an hour-long public discussion on topics related to software curation, preservation, and reuse. Join the Software Preservation Network to access more frequent conversations!

The Software Preservation Network is building momentum in solidarity with several organizations and communities to win an improved exemption in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act for video games. Such an exemption would enable increased preservation and access to video games.

Why is it important to advocate for an expanded exemption? A panel of video game curators, legal researchers and historians will discuss:

Your Speakers

Kendra Albert, Clinical Instructor, Harvard Cyberlaw Clinic

Andrew Borman, Digital Games Curator, The Strong Museum of Play

Phil Salvador, Library Director, Video Game History Foundation
