Do you copy right?

August 31, 2018 — 

“I can copy this, right?”

The Copyright Office receives questions like this on a steady basis from members of the U of M educational community, and with good reason. Copyright can be complex, confusing and fraught with worry about the ramifications of possible infringement.

If you have questions about copyright as you are preparing for courses this fall, we can help! Plan on attending an information session this September or contact us directly.

Copyright information sessions for faculty, instructors, and staff take place on both Fort Garry and Bannatyne campuses.

In 30-minutes you’ll be up to speed on:

  • Copyright basics and fair dealing at U of M
  • Copying photos, artwork, and figures in class lectures and handouts
  • Use of licensed eResources accessible through UML
  • Copyright Solutions: a service dedicated to supporting faculty, instructors, and staff in the use of copyright protected works for educational purposes
