To use a photograph, illustration, chart or other graphic image that you didn't create, you may need to get permission.
Using copyrighted material without permission is copyright infringement or copyright violation and can result in costly legal penalties.
You can avoid copyright infringement by getting written permission from the copyright holder to use copyrighted materials, such as a non-UC photo, drawing, table, or other material for your manuscript.
While UC employees don't need permission to use material that is copyrighted by The Regents of the University of California, it is professional courtesy to credit colleagues if you use their photos or graphics. The University of California has published a helpful website on copyright basics.
Permission isn't needed to use photos, video or other material produced or published by the U.S. federal government or any of its agencies because they are in the public domain. There may be exceptions, for example, the 4-H name and emblem.
You can also learn the basics of copyright, when you can and cannot use images or tables, as well as how to protect your own material. Cynthia Kintigh, permissions officer and publications marketing director, and Robin Sanchez, director of policies, compliance and programmatic agreements, present best practices in a 53-minute webinar at https://youtu.be/J6O6TjreTy4.

Collaborative Design in Extension: Using a modified game jam to explore game-based learning (eXtension Foundation) (Link to publication)
Educational games can be an innovative way for Extension educators to teach content to any given audience. While many in Extension have an interest and passion for using and designing games, the process may seem intimidating to Extension professionals, especially those without experience in game design. This eFieldbook offers an alternative to full game design, in which game developers, content experts, and Extension educators collaborate to design a game prototype. This modified game jam process is budget-friendly and can be completed in a few weeks.

Leadership - It's all about everyone
By Scott Reed, Vice Provost Emeritus, Outreach and Engagement, Oregon State University
Click here to read more.
Essayist William Gibson recently reminded us, “The future is here. It's just not widely distributed yet.” The same sentiment is reflected by the Institute for the Future in discussions of leadership in a world characterized by explosive connectivity and disruption and describes literacies for leading in a “VUCA” world: Volatile/Uncertain/Complex/Ambiguous. The Institute further observes that in the next ten years, leadership will be more distributed and that rock star leaders will be rarer.
How To Build a Fearless Organization (Harvard Business School – Working Knowledge)
By Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management
“Psychological safety at work takes effort. It's not the norm. But it's worth the effort,” says Professor Amy Edmondson. She explains how and why a culture of open candor — and the willingness and courage to speak up — is a strategic asset and can be developed in companies of all sizes, in her new book The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation, and Growth.
“These are not things that happen routinely in most organizations, but they are mission critical to doing well in a complex, fast changing world,” she says. In our Q&A, we asked her guidance for managers and leaders. Click here to read more.
Managing Your Well-Being as a Leader (LinkedIn Learning)
Research shows that today's leaders are suffering from poor well-being and mental health issues more so than ever before. Too often, they put the needs of the business or their team before their own needs. But, much like airline pre-flight instructions to “put your oxygen mask on first, before helping others,” leaders need to take a similar approach by managing their own well-being first. By doing so, they can become role models for their employees and build stronger team relationships that lead to better health and productivity outcomes. In this course, New York Times bestselling author, researcher and workplace expert Dan Schawbel gives leaders the inspiration, advice, and real-world examples to guide them on their journey to better well-being.

The University invites comments on proposed modifications to the Presidential Policy on Copyright Ownership, which updates the 1992 Copyright Policy. Given the significant copyright landscape changes over the years, it has become clear that the time for a policy update is now. Aside from streamlining the language, the policy also includes updates in the following areas:
- Expands eligibility to own copyrights. The definition of “Academic Authors” in the revised policy expands the pool of those eligible to own copyright.
- Expands and clarifies the pool of works eligible for copyright ownership. The policy provides a definition of “Scholarly & Aesthetic Works” – a definition that does not exist in the existing policy. It also clarifies that software is a work for which eligible employees may own the copyright.
- Creates a definition for “Significant University Resources” as a limitation on the University's ownership. The current policy has a broad definition of “University Resources,” which directs, in some instances, that the University asserts copyright ownership when the University's resources contributed to the development of the copyright work. The revised policy now includes a key limitation such that the level of University resources must be “significant” and beyond the support provided to similarly situated authors.
- Clarifies graduate student copyright ownership. The revised policy provides clarity regarding copyright ownership by graduate students of their theses, dissertations and other copyrightable works.
- Clarifies copyright ownership for represented employees. The revised policy specifically states that if an inconsistency exists between a union employee's collective bargaining agreement regarding copyright ownership and the revised policy, the copyright provisions of the union agreement prevail.
- Expands supplemental references. The revised policy expands the “Related Information” and “Revision History” sections to reference additional resources and other supplemental information.
The policy proposal is posted here: https://www.ucop.edu/academic-personnel-programs/academic-personnel-policy/policies-under-review/pres-policy-copyright.html.
If you have any questions or if you wish to comment, please contact Robin Sanchez at firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than Dec. 15, 2019.
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.
