The Bling May Sting: Considerations for the Lawful Use of Copyrighted Materials in Your University Work
When: September 28, 2021, noon to 1pm
Where: via Zoom (link sent after registration)
Presented by: Will Sherman, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies, and Kate Dickson, Copyright and Licensing Librarian; moderated by Sam Sears, Deputy General Counsel
In this presentation, Assistant Professor Will Sherman (Religious Studies) will share his experience responding to an alleged infringement claim and how (even inadvertently) our work can make us vulnerable to copyright infringement claims. He will share some tips with attendees that may help them avoid similar claims.
Copyright and Licensing Librarian Kate Dickson will also provide an overview of copyright law and review the fair use exception to student and employee use of copyrighted works in the educational setting. Attendees will learn the four-part fair use analysis and practice applying it in several hypothetical examples in order to gain confidence working with fair use in everyday situations.
