Fair Game for Republishing in the Digital Age
2-3 p.m. (EDT)
The growth of the Internet has opened a new world when it comes to obtaining information quickly and easily. The newspaper industry continues to adapt when it comes to copyright and fair use laws that govern the desire to spread this information to readers, and the desire of others to spread what the newspaper produces.
This webinar from Online Media Campus will update participants on the latest information, and remind them of protections that have been in place over the years.
We will cover:
- When fair use typically does – and doesn’t – apply.
- Considerations when getting permission to use others’ work.
- Other legal implications when using copyright-protected work.
