Proudly Serving Maryland, Delaware and D.C. Newspapers Since 1908

Mar. 28, 2013 OMC Webinar — Fair Game for Republishing In The Digital Age

Updates on the latest in digital practices, as well as protections already in place.
Obtaining information quickly and easily has become the trademark of the modern Internet, but there’s rules to follow and for some, enforce. The newspaper industry continues to adapt when it comes to copyright and fair use laws that govern the desire to spread this information to readers. This session updates us on the latest information, and reminds us of protections that have been in place over the years.

We will cover:
• When fair use typically does — and doesn’t — apply.
• Considerations when getting permission to use others’ work.
• Other legal implications when using copyright-protected work

Deadline to register for the $35 fee is Monday, March 25th. A $10 late registration fee begins on Tuesday, March 26th.
