copyright symbol
Which terms of your publishing agreement might you want to negotiate? How? Are you adhering to your grant requirements and the SPG? When you’re working on behalf of a publisher, what terms do you seek? Explore these and other questions about publishing contracts in a workshop facilitated by Ana Enriquez of the U-M Library Copyright Office. After a brief overview of negotiation techniques and the law in this area, participants will negotiate mock publishing contracts. The group will then reconvene to debrief those negotiations.

Teaching Fair Use

Fair use is a powerful tool in the hands of librarians, teachers, and students. As anyone who has attempted to explain copyright law knows, fair use is also surrounded by misconceptions. This workshop hosted by Ana Enriquez of the U-M Library Copyright Office will review copyright and fair use as it applies to academic institutions while providing a framework for participants to teach it to students and colleagues. The workshop is designed for participants who have some previous knowledge of copyright law.
