With smartphones in the pockets of a majority of museum visitors, the potential for infringing activity to occur in galleries and on museum grounds is higher than it ever has been. "Freedom of panorama" is an exception to copyright infringement, but its application is limited in the United States. This session explains what freedom of panorama is, how it applies to museums, and what staff need to know about rights and responsibilities. Prior copyright experience is not required to enjoy and benefit from this session. #diggingdeeper
