  • 30 Jan 2018
  • 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Online



Research indicates that images are vital for engaging, as well as informing, our audiences. Or a catchy tune can aid as a reminder tool. But in the rush to find the perfect image or music, the role of copyright and licensing may be overlooked.
In this session, Barbara Ingrassia provides an overview of copyright basics and how to utilize those concepts when selecting images and music for training materials.  Barbara is a certified copyright manager, speaker, and trainer. She has a passion for raising awareness of the role of copyright in our daily lives. We are all consumers and creators of copyright-protected works, and understanding some copyright basics can help us avoid unpleasant “surprises.”

Sources of free and no-cost (with conditions) content, search techniques, and best practices/guidelines will be discussed.  How to protect your own original content will also be addressed.

Following this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • explain the importance of copyright awareness
  • identify appropriate sources for finding suitable content
  • determine the copyright status of works found on the Internet and elsewhere.
  • develop and apply best practices for complying with copyright law and license terms
