Copyright for teaching and publishing

As you publish your research papers, retaining more control of your copyright(s) allows you, and others to use it with fewer legal restrictions,      particularly after publication. When using copyrighted material for your teaching, whether in the f2f or online environment, knowledge of key provisions in the U.S. Copyright Act will help you make appropriate uses of those materials. Learn more...
