Still have questions about copyright at TU?  Please join us for one or more of these follow-up brownbag sessions:

Brownbag Session #1
Topic: Copyright and the Use of Streaming Video and Audio at TU
Thursday, October 21, 12:00-1:30 p.m.
Towson Room, Cook Library Rm 507

At this brownbag session we will discuss a recent legal challenge to UCLA’s streaming video practices, the arguments for and against UCLA’s interpretation of copyright law, and the rationale behind TU’s own policy when it comes to streaming copyrighted media for class use. Faculty who have used streaming media in their courses at TU will also be on hand to share their experience.

Brownbag Session #2
Topic: Course Packets, E-Reserves, and Blackboard—Delivering Course Reading Material Cheaply, Efficiently, and Legally
Friday, October 22, 1:00-2:30 p.m.
Towson Room, Cook Library Rm 507

What is the best way to provide course reading material to your students, given current technological capabilities, the rising concern about skyrocketing textbook prices, and legal constraints to copying and posting readings for students online? Join us as we discuss these questions and present yet another alternative—one that allows faculty to cheaply, efficiently, and legally provide students with access to a vast range of reading material via current technology and at no additional cost to students  or the university.
