Libraries sponsor Fair Use webinar Nov. 2

Have you ever wondered exactly what constitutes Fair Use in your classroom? The increased use of music and movies for educational purposes can make these determinations confusing. Join K-State Libraries for a 60-minute brownbag webinar, Music, Movies & Online Media: Fair Use Do’s & Don’ts for Higher Ed at noon-1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 2, in Hale 301. Highlights of the webinar include:

  • How to avoid copyright violations when using DVDs and CDs
  • Guidelines for applying fair use law to music and movies
  • Keys to handling personal and institutional liability issues
  • What your rights are for copying DVDs, CDs, movies, and video clips
  • Fair Use and YouTube videos in the classroom

The webinar will be led by Kevin Smith, scholarly communications officer at Duke University, where his principle role is to teach and advise faculty, administrators, and students about copyright, intellectual property licensing, and scholarly publishing. He maintains a scholarly communications blog that discusses copyright and publication in academia.

There is no charge to attend. No reservations are required, but seating is limited on a first-come, first-served basis. Bring your lunch and join your colleagues for this practical and interesting webinar. For more information, contact Beth Turtle (bturtle@k-state.edu) or Marcia Stockham (stockham@k-state.edu).
