September 29. 5:30pm - 6:15pm.
Library room 111.

Presenter: Doug Bolden.

This class will focus on the history and facts about copyright, and will compare it to related intellectual property laws like trademarks and patents. This session will be for anyone who simply wants to know more about the basics.

Copyright, fair use, and related intellectual property laws are vital to the modern college campus. Doug Bolden’s series of three classes will break copyright and fair use (and copyleft!) down into the basics and will demonstrate ways to understand it, to appreciate it, and to use it in your classes, research projects, assignments, and more.
