Copyright Education That Invites Participation and Cooperation

From guest blogger Lesley Ellen Harris, copyright lawyer and Certificate in Copyright Management instructor:

You know you need to spread the copyright message with your colleagues but keeping the copyright message relevant to the day-to-day activities of your organization is challenging. Equally challenging is communicating your message. The key is to present the message in a manner that invites participation and cooperation. Here are some suggested copyright education opportunities.

Copyright Education Ideas

  • Develop a scavenger hunt on copyright. Have it incorporate several scenarios that are likely to occur in your organization. Ask staff to identify as many copyright issues as they can. Provide a number of sources of information staff can use to answer the questions (e.g., your country’s copyright office, WIPO, organizational policies).
  • Ask people in your organization to write and produce short (3 minute) vignettes on the use of copyright-protected materials. Getting others involved in copyright education will make them more interested in it. Make it fun; have them record the videos on their smart phones.
