October 13. 5:30pm - 6:15pm.
Library room 111.

Presenter: Doug Bolden.

Copyleft is a body of ideals that try and remove some of the problems of copyright. We will discuss copyright's issues and two of the most widely used copyleft platforms: Creative Commons and the Gnu Public License.

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.
