Know Your Rights: Copyright Essentials for Authors and Creators
How many copyrights do you own? How long will they last? Can you post
your paper online? Can someone else quote from your paper in their own?
This workshop will provide 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.
