This course sets out the basic principles of copyright law. It aims to equip delegates with a knowledge and awareness of copyright in order to enable them to do the right thing – namely, how they are able to provide an information service without breaking copyright law. Ample opportunities will be provided throughout the day for delegates to ask questions or to discuss any unresolved issues.

Anyone who needs a basic overview of copyright law. This course is a general introduction and is therefore relevant whether you work in the public or private sector. The course is primarily aimed at those with little knowledge of copyright, but it will also be useful as a refresher for anyone who needs to know the current situation in this fast-developing field.
NB. This course does not cover electronic copyright or licensing issues. Those wanting to know how to deal with electronic copyright issues should attend the one day course on Digital Copyright, or Digital Licensing, which are useful follow-ups to this course.
