Greg Cram is the Associate Director of Copyright and Information Policy at The New York Public Library.

Greg has helped steer projects through a maze of complex intellectual property issues, including the release of more than 225,000 high-resolution images of public domain collection items.

In addition to his efforts to increase the use of the Library’s collections, Greg has worked on a number of the Library’s open-source software development projects. From innovative crowdsourcing platforms to mobile applications for ebook reading, Greg has helped the Library use and produce open-source tools.

Greg has represented the Library in advocating for better copyright policy and has testified before Congress, the United States Copyright Office, and the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Before joining the Library in 2011, Greg served as the copyright clearance consultant to Leadership Team Development, a business support company that organizes thousands of meetings, seminars and conferences.
