Licensing Workshop: Copyright in the digital age
Date: 30 March 2007; 11:00 hrs
Location: Brettenham House (south entrance), 5 Lancaster Place, London, WC2E 7EN
Cost: £75

The workshop will focus on digital copying and issues relating to sharing between collaborative institutions. Participants will be introduced to a new online interactive tool which demonstrates how online resources from JISC Collections can enable practitioners and institutions to resolve the common misconceptions and issues relating to the use of copyrighted digital and online resources in research, teaching and learning. The workshop will also present a series of scenarios of various legality and ask participants, formed in small groups, to come up with adequate solutions in accordance to rules of best practice for their institution. Then as a large group, discussions will take place around the scenarios and the issues that arose from the small group activity. Solutions will be provided that cover both further and higher education. Participants will leave being able to make judgements on the legal use of resources within their institution and solutions to common copyright and IPR infringement.

If you would like to attend, please complete the online registration form.
