Copyright and Fair Use for Faculty


Copyright and fair use issues are becoming more important in higher education. Scholars are using digital media along with traditional paper media, and this has resulted in an increasingly complex environment for intellectual property and issues related to ownership and access. This workshop takes a practical approach to determining copyright and fair use. It is designed to provide faculty and researchers with the tools that they need to navigate the sometimes rocky landscape of intellectual property and arrive at a reasonable understanding of what they can and cannot do to be in compliance with current copyright practice, as well as how they can protect their rights as authors.

Bullet Points:

  • Learn what you can and cannot do with copyrighted works

  • Find out what Fair Use allows you to do in educational settings

  • Investigate case studies in academic settings to prepare yourself

  2. Will understanding the definition of copyright and fair use
