Copyright: most people have picked up some notion of it from the news, the Internet, or their own publication agreements; but especially since the copyright landscape has changed so much over the last 30 years, there’s still plenty of room for confusion and vagueness.
In 2012, Drew adopted a Copyright Policy Statement (https://uknow.drew.edu/confluence/x/6IewAQ) and a Policy on the Use of Copyrighted Materials (https://uknow.drew.edu/confluence/x/7IewAQ)to help faculty, staff and students stay on the safe side of this complex legal issue.
Jennifer Heise, Copyright Policy Administrator for Printed Media, will be giving a 1-hour refresher on Copyright and the Drew Copyright Policy on
Wednesday, February 26, from 12 to 1 pm
for faculty and staff, but open to the entire Drew Community. Other sessions will be offered if there is interest.
Questions to be addressed include:
- What are copyrights?
- How do I copyright my material?
- How long do copyrights last?
- What is fair use?
- How can I use materials in my research and teaching without violating others’ copyrights?
- What does the Drew Copyright Policy mean for me?
- A brief introduction to new copyright topics
The session will be in the Library’s Staff Room, on Level A of the Learning Center.
