Gray Matter: Copyright Law, Policy, Digital Works and Higher Education

Thursday, January 1, 2004


Copyright law affects IT professionals serving in a wide variety of roles on campus. This presentation will discuss legislation that most directly concerns IT professionals, such as the recently passed TEACH Act, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Peer-to-Peer file sharing, and fair use. IT professionals will learn tips for helping their clientele use digital materials successfully without running afoul of the law. While copyright is by no means black and white, this presentation will give IT professionals an understanding of copyright law and some tools for helping their users better understand the law and its implications for teaching and learning.
