Copyright and Fair Use in the Scholarly Enterprise

Description

Facilitator: Kyle K. Courtney, Esq., Scholarly Communication, Harvard Library

Register for Program

Today faculty, staff, and students can hardly escape the conundrum of intellectual property, but especially copyright. Copyright law has a potential impact on teaching activities, scholarship, and publication. As our work increasingly encompasses copyright-intensive programs and projects, questions arise about topics such as fair use, e-media, digitization, licensing, and, of course, risk. During the height of the pandemic, these long-discussed issues about modern copyright interpretation came to the forefront. Fortunately, there is a careful balance outlined in the copyright law. And there are several exceptions that can serve as the beginning of a robust policy that utilizes these exceptions to increase access. Knowledge of these exceptions can help mitigate risk for institutions.

Join Kyle K. Courtney for an interactive workshop exploring some of these critical copyright exceptions underlying these topics, and other critical aspects of modern higher education, drawing on case law, anecdotes, and his own research.
