Prevent embarrassing publicity and costly litigation by getting training for your staff and clients on copyright law, infringement, and plagiarism.
Training can take on several forms from one-hour presentations on the basics of copyright to multi-day intensive workshops and training sessions that can be custom designed to get very specific on copyright issues you face. Our comprehensive guide Copyright Clearance for Creatives is an excellent copyright textbook for half-day and multi-day workshops. Each workshop attendee will receive a personal copy that they will find to be a useful reference on copyright law.
Multi-day workshops might also include developing in-house copyright compliance policies and procedures for identifying copyrighted materials that may or may not have been cleared appropriately. It often is helpful to provide detailed discussions with content providers on how to locate alternative content from the public domain. Training sessions could also focus on the process of identifying rights holders, requesting, obtaining, and tracking rights to use copyrighted content for organizations that have a good grasp on copyright basics. The most advanced training will include the development of policies and guidelines for maintaining copyright compliance.
