Copyright, the Internet, and You

September 29 @ 6:13 pm

Co-Sponsored by the University Library, University Legal Counsel, and UIC Digital Communications

When and how can you use content from the Web? Students, faculty, and staff use copyrighted materials for scholarship, research, and university business, but understanding how to use content legally can present a challenge. Join Michael Harte, University Legal Counsel, Pia Hunter and Sandy DeGroote, University Library, to discuss best practices for using copyrighted text, images, and media.

The presenters will review the basics of copyright law and fair use, adapting content from the Internet, and when to seek permission from rights holders. Light refreshments will be served.

Event Title: Copyright, the Internet, and You
When: Thursday, February 26, 2015, noon to 1:00 p.m.
Place: Daley Library, Room 1-470 LIB

“Fair Use Week is an annual celebration of the doctrine of fair use and the important role this limitation on copyright plays in achieving the Constitutional purpose of intellectual property rights: to promote the progress of science and the useful arts. The flexible nature of the fair use doctrine has permitted copyright to adapt to new technologies and changes.” –Association of Research Libraries,
