Core Webinar: Creative Commons & Copyright: Working Together

Part 1 of 4-Part Webinar Series: Creative Commons

Date: Tuesday, March 12, 2024

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11 am Pacific, noon
Mountain, 1 pm Central, and 2 pm Eastern time.

Description: In this webinar from Creative Commons, you will learn the
basics of the global copyright system and how it works in the United
States. Creative Commons licenses are built on copyright, so it is
important to have a fundamental understanding of copyright concepts,
including exceptions and limitations such as the public domain and fair
use. This webinar will not turn you into a lawyer, but you will walk away
with a solid grounding in how copyright applies to creative works,
including open access and OER.

Learning outcomes:

At the end of the webinar, attendees will be able to:


   Understand the basics of copyright, including what sorts of works are
   eligible for copyright protection and how copyright is acquired.

   Understand certain limits to copyright, such as the public domain.

   Understand exceptions to copyright, such as fair use.

Who should attend?

This webinar is geared towards a general audience of librarians from all
types of libraries and in any type of role. A better understanding of the
legal basics will help them serve both their patrons and their colleagues
more effectively
