New MOOC Teaches Educators and Librarians About Copyright

New MOOC Teaches Educators and Librarians About Copyright | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it
For many of us in the information industry, copyright is the bane of our existence. We need more than a passing familiarity with key intellectual property and copyright issues, yet the environment is incredibly complex. And while copyright issues plague libraries and the teaching profession, most of us without formal legal training and degrees don't feel adequately prepared or comfortable responding to questions we face during the normal course of business. So the announcement that a team of three well-respected librarian-lawyers would be teaching a massive open online course (MOOC) through Coursera about copyright was greeted with a great deal of excitement from within the library community. Fortunately, the free course did not disappoint.

iLibrarian » 5 Ways to Use Pinterest in Your Library | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it
"Pinterest is a digital pinboard application which started just last year but has quickly become one of the top 10 most trafficked social networking websites according to Hitwise. During the second week in December the website had over 11 million visitors. This is pretty impressive considering that the site is still in the invite-only stage."

Chris Osterndorf:  "From films, to toys, to parks, Walt Disney's original vision has come to fruition so completely it’s hard to imagine even he knew what was possible.  And one of the chief ways Disney has kept that original vision intact is by building a reputation for being very, very litigious."

Greg Clemett's curator insight, July 26, 2:00 AM

Same old adage... all publicity is good publicity?

Or... 'we're making so much money, why bother with time and cost of fighting it'!
