Copyright Law for Learning Professionals “Shedding Some Light”


Some learning professionals create content and use others’ content. (Why reinvent the wheel?) In this interactive overview, we’ll explore and shed some light on the often-confusing role of copyright law in this process. How can you find and use others’ content safely and legally? How can you protect the content you create? How can you raise your audience’s awareness of the role of copyright in their lives?

At the end of our conversation, you will have a better understanding of common copyright terms/concepts, such as:

  • Copyright Protects/Doesn’t Protect
  • Securing Copyright/ Copyright Status
  • Exclusive Rights of the Copyright Owner (Who is the owner?)
  • Attribution vs. Permission
  • Licenses (Creative Commons)
  • Fair Use
  • Public Domain
  • Copyright vs. Trademark
  • Plagiarism vs. Copyright Infringement

You will identify at least one idea you can implement immediately to further strengthen your training programs.

Bring your challenges and concerns about the gray murky maze that is copyright in the digital age.
