Presentation Title: 
Getting the Rights right: Understanding the legal barriers to research data sharing
Description: 
Over the last 18 months, the Research Data Alliance's Legal Interoperability Interest Group has vigorously collaborated and dialogued to devise a set of principles and guidelines on removing legal barriers that inhibit research data sharing worldwide. This international group of lawyers, agency directors, scientists, open science proponents, and one librarian have exposed common myths and misunderstandings about copyright, database protection, attribution, citation, while exploring differences in legal standards across international jurisdictions. This presentation highlights, from the perspective of a campus copyright specialist and research librarian who has participated in the Legal Interop Interest Group, key areas in need of clarification, education, and illustration to help researchers effectively prepare for the possibilities and pitfalls of sharing research data worldwide.
