Social Media Copyright and Fair Use

THU | Nov 2 | 7:00-8:30 PM | Auditorium

Copyright and fair use are so fundamental to 21st century life that we frequently fail to recognize them. This is particularly true on the web and in social media, where copying and sharing are as easy as a few clicks. It’s important to have a basic understanding of copyright and fair use from both legal and ethical perspectives. In this fourth and final session, Josh Bolick will teach you the basics of copyright and fair use and how they work in social media contexts with specific examples, strategies, and time for discussion.
