www.allrightsonline.com develops a Copyright teaching module for community college level students in marketing, marketing communication, new media, and event organisation
At the end of January www.allrightsonline.com gave its first copyright teaching module to students of the community college “de Rooi Pannen” in Tilburg, The Netherlands
Students in disciplines such as marketing, communication, and event organizations are frequently confronted with issues in copyright such as the re-use of text, images, and sound. This is, in particular, relevant when they go for their traineeship as part of their studies, and/or later on in their career when they are assigned specific tasks.
The development and design of communication tools (posters, leaflets, websites) but also the introduction and maintenance of social media may have significant copyright implications
In a module/lecture of 1 hour, students are provided with an introduction into copyright with a variety of practical examples. And with ample room for vivid discussions, the result is a fundamental awareness prior to the traineeship period which potentially reduces the risk for the organisations they will be working with.
During the first sessions at “De Rooi Pannen” some 100 students vividly discussed the various cases and provided for new ones as well.
As part of the module www.allrightsonline.com also provides for an extensive syllabus with the explanation of copyright, practical examples, and references to other useful information sources
Elefteria Argyropoulos-Triandafyllidou, lecturer Communication & Mediadesign, Department Tourism, and Events: “We are very happy that on our request www.allrightsonline.com has composed this module/lecture. These have been very useful meetings and we believe that our students have grown in their understanding about the do’s and the don’ts in the internetworld with so much risk for copyright infringement”.
Berendina van Straalen, lecturer/trainer of Allrightsonline.com: “As a trainer, I am inspired and have enjoyed it very much to explain the practicalities of Intellectual Property Law and of Copyright in particular. I also enjoyed explaining them more about the new (legal) developments in privacy and data protection”. Essential information before starting a traineeship”.
