, I sat in on a presentation by Aimee Bissonette. Aimee is an
attorney for Little Buffalo Law &
Consultingand an expert on intellectual property issues, particularly for
creative artists and entertainers. Her presentation, Law and Technology: Why
Legal Limits Don't Have to Limit Teaching Options, highlighted a number of
copyright and other related issues for K-12 educators. Apparently Aimee struck a
nerve with the folks in the room: she didn't even get to finish her presentation
because she was deluged with questions and scenarios. Good stuff!
The podcast of
Aimee's session is available on my TIES 2006 web page.
