Copyright law protects intellectual property rights in written work, visual images, photographs, video as well as occasionally data sets in particular formats. When writing your dissertation, if you borrow material from other people's work, you may have to think about obtaining permission, or whether you are able to use it without seeking authorization or paying royalties.
This session will explore the basis of copyright law as it applies to academic work, and will include plenty of time for questions. The presenter is Professor Jacqueline Lipton who holds a Ph.D. in intellectual property law from Cambridge University and also runs a freelance consulting business to help students with concerns about academic and other forms of writing.
The session is in the Student Union Room 335.
