Here's what our graduates have to say about the course:
This course has helped me understand copyright issues better, in particular as they apply to the publishing world. As a freelance editor, I have flagged content in a manuscript that likely requires permission to use. This course has helped me see the bigger picture and implications for both author and publisher. I am now better equipped to advise clients about what to consider when including such content and also about how to protect their own work. As far as I can tell it is a unique course, and well worth taking!— Patricia Walsh, Freelance Editor

Thank you for a great course! I learned how to ask for permission and what type of information to include when requesting permission. I will use the information from this eTutorial to make changes in how my institution approaches the use of images and the process by which permission is requested.— Julie Rustad, Distance Education Librarian
I thought the course was great; good value and good presentation of materials and format of lessons.— Robert McLeod, Copyright Coordinator
