"...the most useful copyright course I've ever been on..." "Superb - best course I have attended so far!"

 

- the views of two delegates at the London course held in March

 

Course Outline

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 last?

*†††††††††† 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 organisations

*†††††††††† 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.

†††††††††††

Who should attend

Copyright is relevant to anyone involved in creation, storage, accessing, publishing or use of information. Anyone working with information, especially digital information, or who needs a sound grasp of the foundations of copyright will therefore benefit from the Course.†
