Demystifying Copyright Myths, Public Domain and Creative Commons Licenses is a self-paced micro course in which you learn about copyright principles and debunking copyright myths, what's really in the public domain and what's protected by copyright, and how Creative Commons (CC) licenses can work for you.
You'll have access to the course materials for four weeks (or longer as needed) in our easy-to-use online learning system. These include short videos and downloadable text lessons, a list of 10 essential copyright facts to take forward (no myths here), further resources to consult and a quiz to test your learning.
The expected time to complete this course is four to six hours.
As always, our personal touch remains a hallmark of our copyright education. We’ll continue to work with you to help you schedule learning time in your busy and perhaps disrupted schedule, providing extensions where necessary. Our goal remains the same: to encourage and assist you in completing this course.
