About the Webcast

Toomey Hall Room 250
February 14, 2013

12:00 - 1:30 p.m.

Reduce your legal liability by better understanding how to interpret and apply copyright law to teaching, research, and scholarship.

How copyright and fair use laws apply to teaching, research, and publications is not always clear. The increasing ease of copying and distributing digital materials raises the stakes even more. Faculty often do not have access to the resources and support they need to sort these challenges out.

Join us online to learn the key concepts that every faculty need to know in applying copyright law in the classroom (online and face-to-face), research, and scholarly publications. To help you understand these concepts, our expert instructors will share many scenarios throughout the webcasts.


Who Should Attend

This webcast was designed especially for anyone who deals with U.S. copyright law or fair use regulations, both in the classroom and with respect to research. This includes faculty, librarians, instructional support personnel, legal counsel, and other academic administrators. The content is well-suited to serve as a training element for all employees, regardless of their current familiarity with  copyright law.
