Live Satellite Event: Copyright Issues Online2:30 – 4pm, Healey, lower level. In this workshop, faculty and staff will learn how to apply the “fair use” provision of international copyright code when using copyrighted materials in digital forms. Topics covered will include guidelines and “rules of thumb” regarding the circumstances under which faculty should obtain permission to use materials they did not create. (Knowing when permissions are not required can save a great deal of time and money.) The workshop will also provide information on the simplest, most efficient ways to obtain permission for use when “fair use” guidelines do not apply. For more information, call 617-287-3990.
