Do you provide copies of entire articles to students in your classroom or course Web site? Do you post materials on your course management system or use your CMS or Web site as a virtual classroom? Simply because the content is for educational purposes does not mean that you can copy and distribute it without considering whether that is consistent with the U.S. Copyright Act. Learn from campus legal and copyright experts how to provide the best experiences for your students without violating copyright.

Admission is free, but reservations are required.
