Copyright 101: Staying Legal

Event Type: Face-to-Face
Date: 3/27/2018
Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Time: 4:00 PM
 We are often quick to make decisions about the use of someone’s content, based on what we believe copyright law states. Unfortunately, most of what we know about copyright is hearsay or guesses, yet everything we do in a library is guided by copyright law. This workshop will provide a firm foundation in the fundamental rules of U.S. copyright law. It will help you stay legal and out of trouble with copyright owners, by helping you understand, explain and use the law in your library community.

Participants are encouraged to bring examples of the copyright questions they receive for use during the workshop and Q&A.

Learning Objectives: After this workshop, participants will be able to:
• Explain the basics of copyright law, including:
o What is protected by federal copyright law (Title 17, Sections 102-105)
o The length of copyright protection (Title 17, Chapter 3)
o What rights a creator or copyright owner has (Sections 106-106A)
o What is Fair Use (Section 107)
o How libraries rely on copyright law every day (Section 107-109)
• Evaluate if a work is copyrightable
• Determine if a work is still under copyright protected
• Appraise whether a work can be used under Fair Use
• Discuss copyright law’s impact on electronic journals and ebooks
• Understand how to locate additional information on U.S. Copyright Law
