Introduction to copyright: Copyright issues in secondary data use

This second session on copyright focuses on copyright considerations in the context of secondary data use. The first session, “Introduction to copyright: Copyright and publishing” provides an overview on copyright considerations in both publishing and teaching.

This free 90-minute online workshop will cover the following issues:

  • Secondary data and its common sources.
  • Copyright ownership and duration.
  • Copyright exceptions and limitations.
  • Copyright in an international context.
  • Copyright and licenses.
  • other relevant rights in secondary data use.

By the end of the session, attendees will have a better understanding of copyright considerations when creating, using or sharing data. For example, what protection is offered under copyright and other relevant rights, identifying copyright exemptions, copyright ownership, country-level diversity, etc.

There will be time at the end for questions and discussion.

  • Presenter: Dr Hina Zahid
  • Level: Introductory
  • Experience/knowledge required: None
  • Target audience: Researchers/anyone interested in creating, sharing and using data
  • We will be using Mentimeter to ask questions in this workshop so you may benefit from having a second device ready for this, such as a smartphone.

The event takes place online and starts at 11:00 CEST.
