Copyright Essentials for Educators – On-Demand Training

Sale price$399.00


Ensure Your Staff & Faculty Make Informed Decisions, Manage Risk & Interpret Key Fair Use Exceptions

Copyright law can seem arcane, confusing, overly restrictive and frustrating at best. What can you do? What can't you do? What are the basic principles that govern ownership? There are actually a number of gray areas, allowing you to do much more than you think you can without infringing copyright or risking liability. Equip your faculty and staff with the tools they need to apply a solid copyright framework; approach uncertainties from a risk management perspective; and take advantage of key exceptions, including fair use.

This webinar will guide you in helping your staff and faculty successfully recognize and manage copyright challenges before mistakes are made and legal issues arise.

Topics Covered

As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Approach the inevitable copyright uncertainties from a risk management perspective and become comfortable working in the "gray areas" so you can avoid a lawsuit.
  • Know what you can do, because the law actually allows you to do more than you think regarding the use of copyrighted materials in education.
  • Give your campus members tools they can use so they can recognize the differences between online and offline uses of copyrighted materials.


Steven J. McDonald is General Counsel at Rhode Island School of Design and previously served as Associate Legal Counsel at The Ohio State University.
