Understanding Fair Use During the Pandemic and Other Emergencies

Wednesday, November 10, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Apply for a seat in this 90-minute webinar.

When libraries, schools, and other public facilities closed their doors due to the pandemic and services moved online, questions about copyright and the use of materials in the online environment became much more prominent. While many library employees wonder about the copyright implications of reading a book in an online storytime, some publishers “give” permission; meanwhile, many attorneys and other authorities on copyright state that permission is not needed.

This workshop will use four common scenarios to discuss the application of Fair Use during an emergency as well as in normal times. It will begin by reviewing and clarifying fundamental copyright topics and explore how these play out in each scenario. There will be time for participant questions throughout.

CALL SPONSORED: In order to gain the most impact from learning events sponsored by the CALL grant, we ask that all participants engage fully (attend, participate, discuss and share). If you are unable or not willing to agree to this, please be kind and leave a seat or place for someone else.
