Description:

This course covers copyright legal issues specific to archives of digital material. You'll examine the impact of electronic technologies on the long-held law and tenets of copyright, including digital rights management, and acquiring and advising on the use of rights in records. You'll look at the basic text of relevant federal statutes and significant case law, as well as examining case studies. While participants should be familiar with basic copyright law, a very brief review of copyright essentials will be provided to ground the discussion. The focus of the day will be on how to think through and identify options for resolving the most commonly-encountered copyright legal issues around electronic records.

This course is part of both the Arrangement & Description (A&D) Certificate Program and the Digital Archives Specialist (DAS) Certificate Program. If you intend to pursue either certificate, you will need to pass the DAS examination for this course.
