Copyright remains one of the most challenging legal issues for
information professionals in all areas of the information industries.
This one-day introductory course will chart a path through the
complexity of the subject. It will cover all essential aspects of
copyright and associated rights. Delegates will be taken step-by-step
through the fundamentals of copyright. Woven into the sessions will be
the latest information on forthcoming changes to UK law on copyright and
how you need to understand and prepare for them now. Understanding of
each topic will be illuminated by real-life examples of copyright
issues. Examples will be drawn from a wide range of contexts.
The sessions will include:
* Copyright - what is it, how does it arise and how long does it
* Ownership of copyright
* Categories of copyright works
* The rights of the copyright owner
* Permitted acts and exceptions to copyright
* Database right
* Moral rights
* Licensing schemes for education, commercial and business
* Overview of copyright in the digital environment
* The Gowers Review - Planning for Change: a special, dedicated
session on how the likely reforms to UK law currently under
implementation from the Gowers Review will affect you, and how will you
benefit. What do you need to be doing now?
The course will be led by presentations but will include real-life
problems and scenarios for discussion, and plenty of opportunity for
questions and answers.
