    Kristina Eden, Associate Librarian, Copyright Office

    Meredith Kahn, Publishing Services & Outreach Librarian, Michigan Publishing

    A basic understanding of intellectual property concerns is essential for academic authors, who are increasingly responsible for clearing rights for their own publications, or are seeking to do more than simply sign away their rights to a publisher. This workshop will offer a basic introduction to copyright , fair use, and author’s rights, as well as issues of special concern to scholars in the humanities, including copyright law for music, art, film, theater, and literature.
