11:15–12:00 Legal Aspects of Open Access

Speaker: Doc. Dr. Marija Stonkienė, expert on information law

Abstract: When we speak of open access, often the most emphasis is put on how access to works of science, literature, or art is rendered free. But is this the true essence of open access? What can users legally do with works (objects of intellectual property) when they have “free access” to them? What is the legal content of open access? What are the legal aspects of publishing practice associated with granting open access? What subjects operate within the complex legal relationships pertaining to open access? Which legal issues are brought to light by granting open access in Lithuania?
