Copyright Consideration For Your New (Or Old) Online Course

How does copyright law differ for distance learning and traditional face to face courses? What permissions do you need to share or include another’s content in your online course? Does copyright law have an exception for emergencies? Who owns the copyright in the works you create?

This presentation will cover copyright exceptions for online teaching, an introduction to using openly licensed content, and copyright best practices for transitioning from a face-to-face to online course.

Who: Ohio State Faculty
When: Tuesday, Aug, 11, 2020 from 9:00 – 10:30 a.m.

Bringing Fair Use to Life (Workshop)

How can artists like Andy Warhol, Carrie Mae Weems, Roy Lichtenstein, or Richard Prince legally use somebody else’s materials in their own art? Are you using somebody else’s photograph, illustration, text, or video in your own scholarship or creative project? Do you need permission to do that? Join University Libraries’ Copyright Services for a hands-on workshop on the important exception of fair use, an exception in the law that allows use of copyrighted content without permission. Learn how to use copyrighted materials confidently and legally in your research, teaching, and creative endeavors.

The workshop will cover the factors to consider in determining fair use and look to examples of authors and artists that have relied on fair use in the production of their creative works. Attendees will have the opportunity to work through a fair use analysis while making their own creative work using materials from the OSU Libraries’ collections.

Who: Ohio State faculty, staff, postdocs, and graduate students
When: Thursday, February 27, 3:00 – 4:30 p.m.
Where: Research Commons, 3rd floor of 18th Avenue Library

Celebrate Fair Use with University Libraries: Using Copyrighted Works Legally and Confidently

Copyright law protects many different types of creative works, including books, articles, blogs, videos, music, pictures, architecture, and even choreography. Authors and creators are given certain exclusive rights in the creative works they create. But fair use is an important limit on those exclusive rights; a fair use of a work is not considered a copyright infringement.

Fair use makes it possible for students to copy, critique, adapt, and share copyrighted works, inside and outside of the classroom, without having to seek permission from the copyright owner.

What makes a use a fair use? To determine if a use is a fair use, you must consider the following factors:

  1. Purpose and character of the use;
  2. Nature of the copyrighted work;
  3. Amount and sustantiality of the portion used; and
  4. Effect of the use on the market of the copyrighted work.

Join University Libraries on Thursday, February 27 at the Research Commons to learn more about the four fair use factors and your rights under the law. This event is offered as part of Fair Use Week. Attendees will have the opportunity to work through a fair use analysis while making their own creative work using materials from the Ohio State Libraries’ collections.
