  Copyright Demystified, Part I – What rights do you have, and when might you lose them?
Location: Wilby Room (Ground Floor)

Copyright is the cornerstone of scholarship and creative activities. Creators are rewarded for original works and have a right over them. It is important for any creator to understand the rights they enjoy and learn the pitfalls where those rights do not apply. In this class, you will learn copyright principles and their practical applications from real case scenarios.

  Copyright Demystified, Part II – How to legally use other people’s work without permission
Location: Wilby Room (Ground Floor)

Thanks to the internet, you can find virtually anything you need. Copyright law affords you some safe spaces to use others’ work without permission. However, simply accessing others’ work -- no matter a photo, article, blog post, or short video -- does not mean you can use them freely. In this class, you will learn how to use copyrighted materials without infringement and best practices in obtaining and using materials online.
