Session Description 

Those of us who want to keep our jobs and reputations need to protect our clients from risks, including running afoul of copyright and trademark laws - like "Fair Use" - when creating training materials.

What is Fair Use?
Fair Use is a provision in U.S. Copyright Law-a limitation on the exclusive rights of the copyright owner. That sounds promising. You may have heard of the "dancing baby" copyright case: a mom posted a brief video of her toddler bouncing with Prince's song "Let's Go Crazy" playing in the background. This decade-long case brought the Fair Use limitation into the Internet Age.

Can trainers employ Fair Use in the creation of programs? 
Through case studies, we'll explore the process for determining when Fair Use may apply (It's not a slam dunk.) and examine best practices.

Those who attend this session will learn...

  • How to understand the Fair Use laws and limitations
  • How to determine when and where Fair Use applies
  • How to conduct a Fair Use analysis
  • How to weigh the risks vs. the benefits in your situation
