Publish and be Damned? – Freedom, Responsibility and AUP

Colin Work, University of Southampton gave a plenary talk on “Publish and be Damned? – Freedom, Responsibility and AUP” at the IWMW 1998 event.


Caught between staff and students insisting on their rights to publish on the web and management concerns about appropriate material, what is a “Webmaster” to do? This talk will summarise the key areas of risk in putting material on the WWW, identify potential liability and suggest ways of running a WWW service which minimises the institution’s (and Webmasters!) exposure while catering for the users requirements.
