Top Intellectual Property Developments of 2011

Introduction to the 2011 CCCC-IP Annual

Clancy Ratliff

This is the seventh year of publication for the Conference on College Composition Communication Intellectual Property Annual, published on behalf of the CCCC Intellectual Property Committee — my fifth as editor. That this Annual has maintained this degree of longevity bespeaks the field’s commitment to copyright, intellectual property, and authorship as key concerns. Throughout 2011, the battle between the content industries and the copyright activists continued, but other powerful internet industries have started lobbying for a free and open communication network: Facebook, Google, and more. This year’s Annual engages this rhetorical situation as well as developments in the circulation of scholarly publications.
