Many of us at Stanford are content creators, which means we all need to understand copyright requirements. This means both our options for reusing existing content, and our options for making our own content available. New technologies give us the power to create, communicate, and share materials easily, but we need to ensure that these technologies are used responsibly and ethically. This brown bag seminar, co-lead by Mimi Calter from Stanford University Libraries, will look at the rights granted under US copyright law, discuss best practices for applying Fair Use, and share methods for properly searching for and attributing creative work on the internet.

Objectives:

  • Define copyright law, fair use, and public domain.
  • Learn and apply different creative common terms and definitions.
  • Discover websites and applications to help you properly search and cite creative works.
