Are you an instructor who wants to learn more about understanding the doctrine of fair use, or about using rights-free multimedia materials in your classroom or research? Are you a staff member or administrator responsible for generating creative materials for your department, division, or center?

Copyright & Policy Librarian Anthony Davis and Systems Librarian & Communications Coordinator Colleen Greene are once again teaching this popular hands-on class through the University Business Institute (UBI) on Wednesday, September 18, 2013 (10:00am – 12:00pm) in Pollak Library North 103.

Course Description

Creating quality images, video, audio and interactive content for use in instructional materials and assignments, marketing and promotional materials, presentations website and communication channels can be a challenge. Why try to reinvent the wheel? And do not take the risk of violating copyright.

Designed for faculty and staff, participants will learn: How and when the doctrine of Fair Use covers your use of published media; What is Creative Commons, and how and when you may use it; What is Public Domain, and how and when you may use it; What kind of copyright resources are available here at CSUF.
