The issues of copyright rise in every type of education
Copyright is everywhere! For many students or faculty staff this is unknown territory. They are used to surfing social media and websites freely. Blackboard, Wikipedia, YouTube and many other sites used for teaching carry content which is subject to ownership related issues. It is just not obvious. Did you know that at any level within the curriculum copyright is an issue, from thesis to website design, social media, marketing and other internet developments. Are links shared among students? In every type of education it is essential to understand why sometimes someone else has the right to a video clip, picture or piece of text. And have you implemented a scholarly collaborative networks policy? Do you know what the new 2016 EU Copyright legislation means for your organisation? And what are the copyright issues related to open data?
AllrightsOnline.com has been part of negotiations with some of the largest consortia around, and has listened to librarians, information managers and faculty staff to find out what kind of needs students, professors and teachers have. When dealing with the (re-)distribution of information there are also legislative and common practice rules, just like the highway code, and it is helpful to know these.
Apart from attending summer schools AllrightsOnline is kept up-to-date through networking and copyright conference attendances and develop their skills in dedicated in-house copyright trainings to share the updates with end-users like you. Earlier training experiences like co-organising the first Summer Schools on Digital Libraries with Tilburg University in The Netherlands and other dedicated trainings have shown that tailor made information and Q&A sessions are essential.
Allrightsonline.com has an extensive network which helps in creating balanced courses with input from academia, publishing and governmental policy makers to meet different requirements.
