BYU Copyright Licensing Office hosts contests, workshop to raise awareness

The BYU Copyright Licensing Office will host several activities to increase the campus community’s understanding of copyright issues.

Poster contest: Participants are encouraged to first complete the copyright tutorial at copyright101.byu.edu and then create a 16 inches by 20 inches poster that illustrates the concept of copyright awareness or copyright compliance.

Completed posters should be delivered to the Copyright Licensing Office, 3760 Harold B. Lee Library, by 4 p.m. Oct. 30. (Please note that there is no entrance to this office from within the library. The public entrance is on the outside of the library by the patio southwest of the Wilkinson Student Center and behind the statue of Massasoit.)

The first-place winner will receive $100. Two runners-up will receive $50 each. Participants are also eligible to enter the Tutorial Blitz.

Tutorial Blitz: Faculty, staff and students who complete the online copyright tutorial copyright101.byu.edu by midnight Oct. 31, including the final game found on the left menu bar, will be eligible for the following prizes determined by a random drawing:

• Tickets to a BYU fine arts performance of the winner’s choice.

• Tickets to the BYU/Air Force football game.

• Two-for-one gift certificates to the Skyroom, Legends Grille or the Museum of Art Café.

• Gift cards to the BYU Bookstore for $50 and $25.

• iTunes gift cards.

Winners will be notified by e-mail.

Copyright Workshop: Copyright scholar Kenneth Crews of Columbia University will discuss “Navigating through the Copyright Maze — Basics and Beyond” Friday, Nov. 6, from 9 a.m. to noon in the Assembly Hall of the Gordon B. Hinckley Alumni and Visitors Center.

This workshop will address copyright issues particularly in library and higher education settings and will consider such questions as:

• What are the rights of the copyright owners?

• What constitutes copyright infringement?

• What are allowed exemptions — such as fair use, classroom, library and other privileges?

• What are the copyright issues (and possible answers) in the digital age?

• Does Google have all the answers?

Participants are encouraged to bring their questions and prepare for a lively discussion of the importance of copyright to their work. Learn how to manage your own copyrights and deal with the law in a productive manner in support of your teaching, research and other academic pursuits.
