Heard of copyright? Afraid of copyright? Well, copyright is not something to be feared. It is a system that seeks to protect the rights of work creators, while also allowing the public access and use of those works to foster new creativity, learning, and innovation.

We may not think about it much, but copyright and licensing are everywhere in our daily life. Whether it is creating scans and copies for schoolwork or setting our latest cat video to music and uploading to YouTube, copyright law plays a role in facilitating how creative works are protected and how those works can be used by others.

Come to our workshop to learn the basics of copyright law—what is covered by copyright, exclusive rights of holders, and the Fair Use provisions. The session will include Q&A time as well as where to find reliable resources on copyright law.
