Register here for the workshop.

How many copyrights do you own? How long will they last? Can someone else quote from your paper in their own? Can you post your course readings online for your students? Copyright is really confusing - what is it even for, anyway? This workshop will give faculty and instructors a solid grounding in some of the elements of copyright law that are essential to scholarship, teaching, and research. Learn more about protections in the law for educators, and about your rights as an author or creator. Discuss and debate with your peers about some of the burning questions in the field, and enjoy exploring some entertaining and thought-provoking examples. No direct legal advice will be provided; this workshop is informational and educational in nature. Satisfies RCR continuing education awareness/discussion requirements.
