Don't Get Sued: Copyright and the University Professor
HELD: Thursday, April 18, 2013
3:30 - 5:00
Innovation Gymnasium, Caruth 108
The laws governing fair use of copyrighted materials have always been hazy, and digitization and the internet have added complications galore. In the litigation against Georgia State University, for example, individual faculty members were sued for things they had posted on Blackboard. Join us for a discussion of what instructors and students should and shouldn't do, and suggestions for legally sharing copyrighted works.
