Creative Reuse at Kent: Fair Dealing in Education and Research

University of Kent

The University of Kent is celebrating its strong tradition of creative reuse as part of international Fair Use / Fair Dealing Week.

About this event

For the first time the University of Kent will be taking part in Fair Dealing Week – a celebration of the flexibility in copyright law that allows creative reuse of copyright material. We will demonstrate how research, education and engagement at Kent are all underpinned by a copyright literacy strategy and associated policy which encourage Kent staff and students to make informed use of legal provisions.
