Develop a toolkit for dealing with infringements of copyright, managing risk and developing suitable policies and procedures.

This workshop is for senior managers, project leaders and decision makers who have an understanding of copyright law by having attended one of the basic courses on copyright and wish to learn more. This workshop will develop a toolkit for dealing with copyright issues and participants will consider staff and user expectations and how to create an environment where copyright is handled appropriately.

Course highlights:

The programme will cover:

  • Dealing with infringements of copyright, managing risk and developing suitable policies and procedures
  • Planning requirements and restrictions
  • Institutional copyright policy: internal management of rights as well as copyright and licensing compliance
  • How copyright policies can be successfully implemented and enforced

Why you should attend:

Copyright and licensing are important strategic issues for information professionals, the effective management of which can reduce the risks of copyright infringements and create more efficient working practices.

The afternoon will build upon the areas covered in the morning by facilitating the development of an institutional copyright policy covering both the internal management of rights as well as copyright and licensing compliance for the use of third party materials held by the institution. The session will be concluded with an examination of how copyright policies can be successfully implemented and enforced.

Using a lively presentation style, course leader Naomi Korn will encourage active participation in a relaxed and friendly learning environment. Naomi is an IP Consultant with expertise in copyright, licensing, rights management and rights exploitation.

On completing the course, you will be able to:

  • Identify the need for a structured and strategic approach to copyright
  • Examine how to deal with copyright infringements
  • Explore how to manage risk effectively
  • Produce a plan for your own copyright policy
