Have you ever wondered how things enter the public domain? What rights do you have to control use of your work? To use someone else’s work? This workshop by Ana Enriquez will provide a general overview of copyright law and give participants practice applying copyright law to the kinds of research- and course-related scenarios that come up at Penn State. Two one-hour discussions on Zoom are accompanied by an hour of video content. Participants are expected to watch videos 1 and 2 in advance of the first discussion (Part 1) and videos 3 and 4 in advance of the second discussion (Part 2).
