Title: What Family Historians Need to Know About Canadian Copyright

Speaker: Elise Cole

Details: Every year, materials like photographs, books and other creations move into the public domain, but which ones? For Family Historians, like other researchers, knowing if items can be used and/or reproduced can be difficult to determine. Elise will review what copyright is and what it protects, and when you need to ask permission to use an item under copyright, no matter the format including print or digital. She will also discuss how to ensure your own creations are protected by copyright. Finally, Elise will explore how to apply Fair dealing, and offer suggestions of other resources to use in place of materials under copyright like Creative Commons.

You are invited to a Zoom meeting.
