While there is no “international copyright law” per se, there are legal implications whenever your use of copyright materials — your own or third-party content — extends beyond your country’s borders. Avoid international copyright violations by understanding how the system of international copyright works on a practical level.
Each e-lesson in the Practical International Copyright primer/refresher eTutorial provides up-to-date information on the topic listed, sets out fundamentals for that topic, has a self-marking quiz, and provides URLs for further reading. All of Copyrightlaws.com’s courses are aimed at empowering non lawyers to deal with copyright and licensing issues.
