It is easier than ever to infringe copyrighted works. The way people and businesses share photos and videos online, especially through social media, can even seem to encourage risky behaviors like copying and pasting. If not well-versed in copyright law, then clients or their employees can easily misunderstand whether something is available for use, or how to go about getting permission.
This course will provide guidance on how to navigate the various ways of obtaining permission to use copyrighted works online, focusing on social media.
The presentation and materials will cover three primary areas:
assignment and licensing issues related to works found online, including requirements under Creative Commons and open-source licenses
when fair use and related defenses can be asserted in connection with the use of works on social media.
