Analyzing Any U.S. Copyright Problem

Spring Copyright Workshop Series: Solving Any U.S. Copyright Problem

Do you find yourself hesitant to use others’ content in your own work? This workshop will address four basic steps to take when approaching a copyright problem in the U.S.:

  • Is the work protected by copyright?
  • Is there an alternative license that covers your use?
  • Is there an exemption in the law to cover your use?
  • Do you need to seek permission or a collective rights agency for your use?

You’ll learn the basics of copyright, exemptions that allow for certain educational and scholarly uses, the fair use exception, how to carefully construct a permission letter, how to find collective rights agencies and the scenarios for when each of these approaches is appropriate and necessary.

This series is presented by the Center for the Advancement of Digital Scholarship (CADS) at K-State Libraries. CADS promotes and enhances education, instruction and consultation on copyright, fair use, author rights and other intellectual property issues. For more information or for assistance with a copyright question, contact cads@k-state.edu.
