"Intellectual Property in the Information Age..."

Leading-edge online training from the University of Maryland

June 6-17, 2005 


The information economy, aided by rapidly-changing technologies, has propelled the subject of intellectual property (IP) law into a position of critical importance.  Join Lee S. Strickland, J.D., Director of the Center for Information Policy, and fellow information professionals to explore questions like "how is the Digital Millenium Copyright Act being used today by big business?  How has it changed the reproduction rights of libraries?  How does the Copyright Term Extension Act affect your institution? 


Course topics include:  IP law (copyright, trademarks, cybersquatting, patents, etc.); copyright law (infringement, fair use, implications for educators, etc.); IP in the political, business, and judiciary sectors; and, digitization projects and libraries (best practices to best resources).   


This fully-interactive, web-based course features video, live chat sessions, and real-life scenarios to be discussed in a bulletin board environment.  A customized CD-ROM will be mailed to you in advance.  You should plan to devote approximately ten (10) hours to the course over a two-week period.  Upon successful completion, 1.0 CEU will be awarded.
