Come to this session and learn the basics of copyright law and some guidelines for how you can stay within the law using the four principles of Fair Use. Please remember that librarians cannot give you advice regarding copyright issues, but we can steer you in the right direction to find answers to your questions.

  • Practical scenarios applied to the  context of Fair Use
  • Engage in an open discussion about copyright ethics
