Copyright, Fair Use and Creative Commons: Allies in Educational Settings

Class Details

Is copyright automatic? When is Fair Use, well, fair? Does a Creative Commons license grant unlimited use of the work?

Determining whether you have the rights to use an article, image, video, or table can take some of the fun out of developing a presentation, class, or course. In this session, you will be introduced to a practical framework for understanding what can be copyrighted and what can’t be with some typical scenarios librarians and educators encounter. You will also learn about where and in what context Fair Use applies, the different types of Creative Commons licenses, and how those licenses can help minimize copyright risk.

Presenter: Ben Harnke is an Education and Reference Librarian at the University of Colorado Strauss Health Sciences Library. He teaches a well-attended copyright class and is leading the Open Educational Resource initiative on the Anschutz Medical Campus.
