I don't post NEFLIN webinars, but I decided to make an exception. I haven't seen many online webinars regarding copyright, so I am going to provide the details for our upcoming copyright series.
COPYRIGHT SERIES with GRETCHEN McCORD
Note: It is suggested that you attend the first three webinars and then the Issues course that is applicable to your library.
1. BASIC COPYRIGHT ISSUES
Wednesday, January 26, 2:00 - 3:30 pm
Copyright laws can be confusing. What are the guidelines for librarians, patrons, faculty, and students in the age of the Internet? Gretchen McCord - librarian, attorney, and copyright consultant - will cover some crucial tips for making the right decisions. Later programs will go into details in different areas of copyright.
2. FAIR USE VS. COPYRIGHT
Wednesday, February 23, 2:00 - 3:30 pm
Librarians and library users rely heavily on fair use on a daily basis. Everyone has an idea of what constitutes fair use and most of those ideas are a mix of correct and incorrect information. Learn not just what factors go into determining what constitutes fair use, but learn how to actually apply those factors in making a determination of fair use.
3. DIGITAL RIGHTS, THE INTERNET, AND SOCIAL MEDIA
Wednesday, March 23, 2:00 - 3:30 pm
Although there is no separate copyright law for the Internet, generally speaking, applying copyright to the Internet and social media offers its own particular challenges. Learn how to work through those often confusing and complicated situations so that you can best help your library and its users to exercise their rights without crossing risky lines. This session will also address law that is specific to the Internet, such as certain aspects of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
