Do you think about copyright when you write a blog post?

Or a white paper?  Or the text of a web page?

How do you protect the content you’ve written and address infringement if it occurs?  Under what circumstances do you need to seek permission when using others’ content?

These types of questions will be addressed in our next online copyright course, “Copyright Essentials for Content Creation and Distribution” (CCM800).  CCM800 begins Monday, November 10.

Instructor Lesley Ellen Harris of will explore these topics–

  • criteria for copyright protection;
  • licensing work to others;
  • moral and economic rights;
  • incorporating and adapting third-party works;
  • protecting online works;
  • using the copyright symbol;

and much more!

CCM800 is part of SLA’s Certificate in Copyright Management, but any course can be taken à la carte.

Course schedule:  November 10 – 24 (review the full schedule)
Cost:  $395/members | $495/non-members

Discounts are available to SLA members.  Don’t wait!  This course will not be offered again until 2016!

    Or, one can let others reuse and/or reference your work with a CC license. They have many flavors of licenses. This way, they are not stealing the content, but they can build upon it, and they have to attribute the creator.

  2. Lesley says:

    Thanks Joe, Creative Commons Licenses are an important part of copyright issues relating to authors and publishers. In this course, we will discuss CC licenses and how they may be helpful in various publishing scenarios.
