Workshop: Copyright Issues Online (Satellite Event)
Course ID - CTD0196
The legal environment for digital copyright issues is complicated,
contentious, and ever-changing, making it as perilous as ever for
institutions of higher education. The current top issue is the new
TEACH (Technology, Education and Copyright Harmonization) Act, which
became law in November 2002. This act expanded the scope of
educators' rights to use certain copyrighted materials online, but major restrictions and conditions apply.
Understanding what the new law permits and requires is vital.
A panel of experts on higher education copyright law will analyze:
- Implications of new TEACH Act
for teaching and learning
- Continuing role of "fair
use" provision in analyzing copyright issues in distance
- Efficient procedures for
obtaining copyright clearance for materials for online courses
- Elements of an effective
institutional policy on copyright and online learning
As a result of successful
completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Know the basic provisions and
limitations of the TEACH Act
- Know why fair use remains a key
element in online courses
- Get information on copyright policy
into the hands of faculty and students
- Understand the value of the Copyright
