Copyright & Fair Use: A how-to for education

Do you often find yourself wondering whether you can use a certain image, video, article, or table in your teaching and scholarship? Do you waiver between asking permission or begging for forgiveness later? This class will empower you to confidently make basic copyright decisions.  Using your real-life scenarios, we will introduce and apply the concept fo fair use (an exception to copyright) and will examine Creative Commons licensing as a way to lower risk.  Class topics include:

  1. What is the purpose of copyright?
  2. What is copyrightable and what is not? 
  3. Copyright ownership as a university employee.
  4. Applying fair use to participant copyright scenarios
  5. Understanding, locating and using Creative Commons material.

This is an active discussion class, please bring your own copyright situations/concerns. The first hour of the class is an introduction to copyright, fair use, and Creative Commons with the remaining 30 minutes reserved for continued discussion of any participant questions.
