Tweets and Facebook and copyright, oh my!

Are tweets protected by copyright?  And what does a license have to do with it?

Certificate in Copyright Management instructor Lesley Ellen Harris has a few thoughts about copyright and social media.  Her column in the November/December issue of Information Outlook explores the copyright implications of Twitter, both through the application itself and for the reproductions of tweets elsewhere.

Lesley covers social media and other digital formats in the upcoming certificate program offering “Copyright Solutions for the Digital Age.” This online course begins Tuesday, February 10, and here’s some of what you’ll learn about–

  • ownership of online content and user-generated content
  • electronic rights
  • licenses vs. assignments of copyright
  • digital works that are protected
  • copyright treatment of various formats, including blog posts, electronic archives, images, social media postings, and electronic downloads

Schedule for online sessions:  February 10, 18, 26  (full program schedule)
Course format:  includes sessions, independent reading, discussion list work
Price:  $395/members | $495/non-members
