CCM Open House: Why We Need to Manage Copyright
Presenters: Lesley Ellen Harris, Copyrightlaws.com
Why we need to manage copyright is the underlying theme of Click University’s Certificate in Copyright Management program. This blended learning program is designed for those who manage copyright issues without the benefit of a law degree. The seven online and two in-person courses, developed and taught by lawyer and author Lesley Ellen Harris of Copyrightlaws.com, will help those in any type of organization thoughtfully and practically deal with copyright and licensing issues. The courses have something for everyone, with topics covering the definition of copyright management; copyright issues for librarians, authors, and publishers; global and digital copyright issues; and answering questions from others about copyright. What are your copyright questions?
The open house, which took place on September 3, 2014, provides a brief introduction to the meaning of copyright management and copyright compliance from the perspective of all information professionals including librarians, publishers and vendors, and those who work with these groups. Lesley reviews what’s involved in the Certificate in Copyright Management program, including the substance of each course, and how the online and in-person courses work. If you deal with copyright and licensing issues in your organization, you’ll learn how you can better manage those issues and stay legally compliant. Copyright needn’t be a topic you avoid and get frustrated by. Let us help you evaluate your issues and move forward in managing them in a practical, knowledgeable, and supportive manner.
