Philosophy of our copyright training: “The course materials are remarkably free of legal or technical jargon, and are therefore eminently readable and easy to absorb. Even court cases are used sparingly, and only when they help to clarify a point…aims to achieve a balance between explaining the law and giving enough detail in order to also be able to understand the intricacies of the existing law.” Read the entire online course review.
