Copyright and Fair Use for Scholarly Authors

Copyright and Fair Use for Scholarly Authors Online

This workshop will cover key information about copyright, fair use, and the public domain, and look at how copyright law both complicates and facilitates scholarship. Topics will include:

  • What kinds of works are covered by copyright?
  • What rights are included in copyright, and who holds those rights?
  • How long does copyright last?
  • What is the public domain, and how do works become part of it?
  • What is fair use, why does it exist, and how can you determine if a use is fair?
  • How have court cases changed what qualifies as fair use, and what are the implications of those cases for scholarship?

Who can attend? The entire CUNY community is welcome. The session is especially well suited to faculty, graduate students, and other researchers.

Can't make it? If you're interested but can't make it, register anyway. The presentation will be recorded and made available to registrants.
