7 Day OutLook
Date: Monday, August 13, 2012
The recent ruling on the Georgia State University copyright infringement lawsuit provides the most specific guidance to date from any court on questions of educational fair use—especially for distance education programs. As such it is an invaluable guide for administrators and policy makers. On the other hand, to get that guidance on any particular point, you have to wade through the 350 pages of the court’s decision.
That’s why Distance Education Report is sponsoring The Copyright Case We’ve Been Waiting for: Key Lessons & Policy Changes. Linda Enghagen is an attorney and professor in the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and the author of Fair Use Guidelines for Educators, among many other works on copyright law in educational settings. Ms. Enghagen has read, and studied, the court’s full decision, and she has drawn out the key principles on which you can base the practices in your own program.
The Copyright Case We’ve Been Waiting for: Key Lessons & Policy Changes is a one-hour online seminar on August 13, 2012. The seminar runs from noon to 1:00 p.m. CDT. In a solidly packed 60 minutes, you will learn what you need to do, and what you need to avoid doing, under the terms of the new ruling.
