Learn how to apply copyright law practically to common and emerging issues on your campus and develop a plan for training others.
Copyright law can be thorny when applied in a traditional university setting. It has become even more complex in the digital environment. In order to apply copyright law in live, print, and digital environments, it’s critical to have a fundamental understanding of its important principles. The rights of owners and users, ownership and how to allocate it, management of copyright, and, of course, fair use will all be discussed throughout the conference.
Join us for an event designed to help you learn the fundamentals of copyright and how to apply them to every sector of your work as a faculty member, librarian, or administrator. After learning the fundamentals, we will help you develop a plan for taking the knowledge back to your campus and to train others.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Compliance officers, librarians, faculty, legal counsel, and administrators responsible for training others or for the creation, development, and administration of institutional copyright policies and practices will expand their understanding of copyright law and its application.
Whether you are a new or seasoned faculty member, librarian, or administrator, we encourage you to attend this conference to learn how to apply copyright law to your work and institution and to learn ways to train your colleagues and students. Starting with a number of common scenarios, this conference will provide you with ideas, concepts, and strategies for initiating and sustaining good copyright practices at your institution and will provide you with effective styles for training your campus colleagues. The conference is hands-on, scenario based, and practically focused.
