Online Discussion: Copyright Basics

Have you ever wondered how things enter the public domain? What rights you have to control use of your work? What rights you have to use someone else’s work? Bring your questions for an online small-group discussion of copyright basics hosted by Ana Enriquez of the U-M Library Copyright Office. The office’s guide to Copyright Basics will provide a framework for group discussion.
