Copyright is an important aspect of intellectual property law, but an often misunderstood one. It is legally distinct from patent and trademark laws in important ways. In the United States, the Copyright Act gives creators of copyrighted works control over the use of their creations.

In this session we'll go over what copyright is, and what works it applies to (and what it doesn't apply to). We'll also talk about using the copyrighted work of others in your own creations.

Audience: Students, faculty, researchers, artists, and entrepreneurs.

The class is offered online on Thur., March 3 at 1 p.m. Please follow the link on this page to register.
