Digital Copyright

A session at ASLIB Training: Digital Copyright with Naomi Korn

The creation, management and access to digital resources requires a thorough understanding of the laws and practices relating to copyright. In fact, copyright know-how is crucial to digital literacy and therefore understanding digital copyright is vital to librarians and information professionals who are working in a fast developing, technology-driven work place.

The programme will cover:

* Broad technological, legislative and policy related developments (including case law, open content and open data)
* Copyright laws and the global web - How do they work?
* Social Media - Key IP and licensing issues
* Digitisation and Copyright Workflow
* Carrying out an IP Audit - What, Why, How and When
* Orphan Works and Risk Management
* Licensing - How to get permission, from whom and how?
* The role of Creative Commons and other open access licences
* Scenarios, group work and plenty of discussions.
Please note: The emphasis will be on UK Copyright Law, although some international issues will be covered.
