Copyright in Action: Getting Permissions

 Registration is closed for this event


Copyright legislation and fair use case law provide many exceptions and allowances for the use of protected materials.  However, even those numerous exceptions can’t cover all the scenarios you might encounter.  Sometimes it might be necessary to contact the copyright holder and seek written permission.  Think it’s impossible?  It doesn’t have to be.  Learn the recommended steps you should take to pave the way for a “yes.” 

Attendees to this session will have the opportunity to

  • Review the basic tenets of copyright and fair use
  • Examine the factors to consider before seeking permission
  • Explore the resources needed to identify a copyright holder
  • Discuss best practices and recommendations for creating a permission request
