FREE webinar: Compliance of the Library Services to Copyright Law

Copyright is something librarians need to learn as they are responsible for managing and providing access to copyrighted materials. Copyright law grants exclusive rights to creators of original works, and librarians must be knowledgeable about these rights and how they apply to library resources. This includes understanding fair use, licensing agreements, and digital rights management. Without a solid understanding of copyright law, librarians risk infringing on the rights of copyright holders. Also, librarians must be able to educate their patrons about copyright law and how it affects their use of materials, as well as advocate for policies that promote access to information while respecting the rights of creators.

The UP Library Science Alumni Organization will be conducting a free webinar on the topic, "All Rights Reserved! Compliance of the Library Services to Copyright Law" on April 29, 2023 (Saturday), 2-5 PM.

This webinar-workshop will focus on the application of copyrights in other library services such as, but not limited to, storytelling, film screening, movie exhibitions and preservation practices. The main goal is to increase knowledge and awareness of information professionals on various copyright concerns in different library services and preservation practices.

The speaker is Dr. Fernan Dizon, Chief of Copyright Services, Division of the Bureau of Copyright and other Related Rights (BCRR) of the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines.

This webinar was organized for the World Intellectual Property Day on April 26, 2023.
