Copyright Corner

EVENT: “Basics of Copyright for Students and Professionals��?
March 24, 6:00pm – 7:00pm

This session will provide basic copyright information including the bundle of rights that make up copyright and the four "Fair Use" factors. Participants will be introduced to resources that will provide practical information for all who use copyright-protected materials:
• What does the copyright law actually say?
• What are “orphan works��?
• What is the Creative Commons?
• What can I use for my classes?
• How do I ask permission to use the work of others?
• How do I find out who owns the copyright?
• What rights do I have?
• What is the TEACH Act?
• What is the public domain?

These questions will be discussed and the various resources used to answer them will be reviewed in the session.
