Copyright infringement lawsuits against institutions of higher education are no longer a hypothetical. A number of different universities around the country have been named in lawsuits alleging various types of infringements. The cases involve everything from posting articles and book chapters to e-reserves, course web sites, or learning management systems to streaming video and digitizing orphan works. Using the framework of Six Rules for Course Design, this workshop will cover all the basics. In addition to examining the rules governing who owns the copyright to works created in educational institutions, the rights of users will also be addressed. This includes an overview of fair use (including the fair use guidelines) and the TEACH Act.
