I work with Intellectual Property on a regular basis and know that I will apply everything I learned in the “Legally Using Images eTutorial.”

I thought the email format was excellent. I was able to read through each lesson and quiz in about 30 minutes. Each lesson was densely packed with practical copyright information. I especially liked the links to Further Information. Having this information will help me better explain to our authors “their” need to procure permissions for images they use in manuscripts they submit to us.
— Lisa G. Reckmeyer, Peer Review Specialist (November 2017)
I got exactly what I expected from this course. The email format was great. I thought the in depth analysis of Creative Commons licenses was the most valuable piece in the lessons. Would be an excellent primer for anyone coming into a copyright job. I really would have appreciated this course earlier in my career.
— Kimberley Kemmer, Copyright Clearance Assistant at the University of Alberta
The format of the course is perfect: just the right length so that it doesn’t feel like it’s consuming a lot of one’s time at work. I learned a lot from this course and was reminded about the importance of not being lax regarding getting permissions. I’m an editor for a geological survey and we quite often review manuscripts that are using third party material for which permissions have not been sought.”
