Why we need to manage copyright is the underlying theme of Click University’s Certificate in Copyright Management: Principles and Issues program. Join our virtual open house on 27 November 2012 @ 1 pm. The courses in the program are designed for those who manage copyright issues without the benefit of a law degree. The seven online and two in-person courses are aimed to help those in any type of organization thoughtfully and practically deal with copyright and licensing issues. The courses have something for everyone, with topics covering the definition of copyright management; copyright issues for librarians, authors, and publishers; global and digital copyright issues; and answering questions from others about copyright. What are your copyright questions?
The open house webinar will provide a brief introduction to the meaning of copyright management and copyright compliance from the perspective of librarians, publishers and vendors, and those who work with these groups.
2013 marks the 6th year of the program, which broke attendance records by 50% in 2012. Developer of program and instructor Lesley Ellen Harris and SLA’s Carolyn Sosnowski will be on hand to answer questions during the 60-minute open house.
