OhioNET: Copyright in Action – Determining Copyright Status
The concept of copyright and the protections it offers for authors and creators is rooted in the United States Constitution. However, the processes and practices of copyright have changed many times throughout the intervening years, leaving a complex set of steps you may need to follow in order to determine whether a title is (or is not) currently under the protections of copyright. Attendees of this session will have the opportunity to:
- Explore a brief history of copyright practices in the U.S.
- Discuss the current requirements for copyright
- Examine resources that can help accurately research the copyright status of an item
The event will be held on Tues., Oct. 12th, 2021 from 2:30-4PM ET. For more information, please go here. When registering, select Kent State – iSchool as the organization. (Registration is free for iSchool students).
