How can a law almost as old as our country work in today's high-tech universities? On April 4, UC ANR Office of Contracts and Grants will sponsor a workshop and webinar to provide academic basic information on copyright law and policies related to teaching and research, and how they affect typical needs of our university community. The workshop, which runs from 9 a.m. to noon, is intended to give academics a better sense of how copyrights work at UC ANR.
- What is copyright? How is it different from patents and trademarks?
- Who owns copyrights at UC ANR?
- How does one get a copyright?
- When and how can one use copyright-protected material belonging to someone else?
- If there is no money involved, does it really matter?
- How does the Internet affect copyright?

UCOP has submitted a proposed revision of the presidential policy on copyright and fair use for systemwide review and employee comment. You can access the revised policy at http://libraries.universityofcalifornia.edu/sscp/resources.
The 1986 Policy on the Reproduction of Copyrighted Materials for Teaching and Research has been totally revamped, and renamed the University of California Policy on Copyright and Fair Use.
Note that, in conjunction with the revised policy, a revamped and updated UC Copyright website (http://copyright.universityofcalifornia.edu) was launched in mid-February.
