Institutional Copyright Policies

January 14-29, 2010
Instructor: Steven McDonald, J.D., General Counsel, Rhode Island School
of Design
This online workshop will help you evaluate & answer some of the many
questions that flow from the process of policy development within the
arena of higher education. Who owns the work? And who can do what with
the work? Is cyberspace a separate jurisdiction with a different set of
rules than the physical world? Does the institution need a new policy
and resource, or is a current policy sufficient and applicable-or
adaptable-to the technologies, opportunities, and demands of academic
life, both online and offline, in the digital era?
Goals for the course:
In this course, participants will:

1. Gain a practical understanding of basic copyright principles as they
apply in and to higher education generally;

2. Learn how to evaluate institutional copyright policies and discuss
the development and modification of those policies;

3. Understand the policies and technical steps your institution will
need to implement in order to take full advantage of the opportunities
that copyright law allows;

4. Gain a greater understanding of Internet law and policy;

5. Be encouraged to think about how copyright policies can serve the
educational mission.

in Higher Education requires that participants take one elective

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
