Seminar 11A - Practical Copyright: An Oxymoron? Fresh Approaches and Useful Practices for Managing Copyright
PLEASE NOTE: Separate registration and fee is required to attend this seminar.

Tuesday, October 18 | 9:30AM–1:00PM | Meeting Room 111A/B
Session Type: E11
As administrators, academics, and librarians, we struggle to understand and apply copyright with little or no guidance from campus. How do we manage questions such as: Can I stream this video? Can I convert VHS tapes to DVDs? Can I make PDFs of articles to share with colleagues? Can I download music, images, and video or create my own work? This session is for administrators, academics, librarians, and others at all levels of their career. We will provide a basic copyright foundation, then launch a more detailed analysis and application of the copyright law to common educational concerns. The discussion will explore common copyright issues in education and offer participants a theoretical framework for understanding them, practical tools for managing them, and advocacy skills for resolving them across multiple stakeholders. We will also address current copyright events and trends of particular significance to higher education.
