Copyright and Fair Use in Dissertation and Thesis Writing
Copyright issues have become more important, and more contentious, than ever before. This workshop will examine some of the basic principles of copyright law and discuss how they apply to the dissertation and master's thesis. We will also consider the issue of intellectual property ownership for scholars and how that ownership can best be managed to serve the interests of the scholar and of the academic community in general.
*Although anyone may register, this event will be most useful to students who are writing dissertation and master's theses.
