This workshop will review key court decisions and legislative history to show how Fair Use is not a defense to copyright infringement, but rather a critical legal right. In addition to learning about the legal precedent around Fair Use, participants will also gain a practical understanding of (1) how to conduct a Fair Use assessment and (2) the ways that Fair Use is often exercised by library users in the course teaching, scholarship, and research.
Florida State University Libraries are excited to host “Know Your CopyRights,” a workshop series on copyright law for libraries. The series is a free professional development opportunity for librarians and library staff, focused primarily on building a broad understanding of US copyright law, common copyright exceptions and issues, and the practical application of copyright in day-to-day library work.
Each workshop is offered twice for attendees' convenience, and content is noncumulative; feel free to sign up for one session or for all of them!
