Copyright and Coffee: Copyright Myths and Facts

Have you heard about the so-called “10% rule”? Does copyright exist to reward the hard-work of creators? Does UK law matter to you as a US scholar? If you want to distinguish copyright myth from facts, this is the workshop for you. Sip some coffee as we discuss copyright law. This 90-minute workshop from Yuanxiao Xu of the U-M Library Copyright Office will cover copyright concepts from the public domain to fair use.
