This is Perfect!  Can We Use It?  Understanding Copyright Law and Fair / Educational Use

Webinar for the Pro Bono Partnership- White Plains, New York

 

On May 11, one of our partners Terrence J. McAllister participated in a webinar held by the Pro Bono Partnership that focused on issues such as does your nonprofit use images, articles, video, or educational materials from other sources?  Do you know when you must have permission to use such works?  Or have you assumed that copyright laws don’t apply to a nonprofit’s use? 

 

Specific topics included:

·         An introduction to federal copyright laws – what are they and what do they protect?

·         What is “fair use”?

·         When / how can an organization use copyrighted work for educational purposes?

·         How can an organization obtain permission to use copyrighted materials?
