Hi all,

You may have seen my email earlier this week announcing the copyright strategy—a new effort to improve how we identify, prioritize, and address copyright issues throughout the Wikimedia movement. (I’ve copied it below, in case you missed it.)

As part of getting feedback on the strategy and communicating its vision, goals, and process, the Wikimedia Foundation legal team will be holding an office hour on IRC:

Thursday, September 15, 2016. 14:00 UTC (07:00 PDT).

Please stop by #wikimedia-office at that time to discuss the copyright strategy and ask any questions you have about it. There are instructions for participating on Meta:

We have timed the office hour to correspond with when we expect to shift our focus from meta-discussion about the strategy to following the strategy and addressing individual copyright issues. 

In the meantime, please take a look at the copyright strategy itself, and feel free to provide feedback on the talk page:

Hi all, 
We on the Wikimedia Foundation Legal Team have been working on creating a
better and more collaborative process for organizing, streamlining, and
completing Wikimedia’s copyright-related work. We’d like to hear from you
about it in the next couple weeks, and then we’d like to work together to
identify, prioritize, and address copyright issues. 
You can read more about the copyright strategy on Meta at
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Copyright_strategy and leave questions and
comments on the talk page.
