Copyright Issues for People Online

Maxwell Memorial Library

Maxwell’s Tech Program for Thursday, November 21, 2019

There are many myths about what copyright allows or forbids, and the ease of copying and sharing material that technology provides has made it necessary for everyone to sweep those myths away and get a better understanding of copyright’s reality.

In November’s tech program, we will look at the general outlines of copyright law, some resources for getting more detailed information, and Open Culture licensing (like Creative Commons and various so-called Copyleft licenses) that creators use to clarify terms for reusing their creations.
