Copyright and Fair Use for Graduate Students

A workshop designed for graduate students, Copyright and Fair Use for Graduate Students will deal with the practical application of copyright law and its air use provisions. Considering copyright at the beginning of the research process will simplify the completion of the degree requirements for graduate students.  Attendees will learn why and when copyright is important to scholars--researchers, writers & teachers--and these important skills:

  • How to determine when permission is needed to use an excerpt or image
  • How to obtain permission; what to do when permission to use an image or excerpt cannot be obtained
  • How to evaluate if fair use may be an appropriate defense for your use of material protected by copyright.

This workshop is being co-sponsored by the Graduate Student Government, Office of Graduate and Professional Education. The workshop is available at no charge and are open to University of Delaware faculty, staff and students. Seating is limited and registration is required.
