Copyright primer

Deputy General Counsel Sam Sears and Copyright and Licensing Librarian Kate Dickson will co-present a copyright primer for the audience.  The presentation will provide attendees an overview of copyright law and applicable UNC Charlotte copyright policy, with a focus on: (1) university, employee, and student rights in copyrighted works created within the scope of employment or enrollment at UNC Charlotte, and (2) the fair use exception to students' and employees' use of copyrighted works in the educational setting.  Attendees will learn the four-part fair use analysis and practice applying it in several hypothetical examples, in order to gain confidence working with fair use in everyday situations.

When: March 21, 9-10:15 am

Where: CHHS 281
