Copyright workshop for academics, April 4

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.

Workshop topics:

  • 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?

Presenter Jan Carmikle, Esq., has been a part of UC Davis since 1985 in a variety of roles. She is currently the senior intellectual property officer at UC Davis' InnovationAccess, a unit of the Office of Research with an emphasis on copyrights and material transfer agreements. She is also the UC Davis designated agent for the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

What would you like to learn about climate science and outreach?

4-H members participate in an activity about the water cycle.
The UC ANR Climate Change Program Team is asking UC ANR academics to complete a survey to help assess their needs for professional development related to climate science and outreach.

“To better understand climate-science training needs across UC Cooperative Extension and the Agricultural Experiment Station, we want to hear from colleagues across the family and consumer sciences, youth development, agriculture and natural resources disciplines,” said Leslie Roche, UCCE rangeland science and management specialist at UC Davis. “For example, if you lead programs on food, drought, pests, farmworker safety or environmental education, then climate science is relevant to you.”

“The survey includes questions about your interests and experiences in incorporating climate science and outreach into your research and extension programs,” Roche said. “We will use this information to guide future professional-development opportunities to better support UC ANR's research and extension work.”

The program team is also taking inventory of climate-related research and outreach being done by UC ANR so they would like to know about any research or outreach activities that are related to climate change.

The climate survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. This survey is anonymous and participation is voluntary. The program team plans to share the aggregate survey results.

To begin the survey, visit http://ucanr.edu/climatetrainingsurvey.

If you have any questions about the survey, contact Roche at lmroche@ucdavis.edu.

Roche is collaborating with Climate Change Program Team members Ted Grantham, UCCE climate and water specialist at UC Berkeley; Faith Kearns, academic coordinator for the California Institute for Water Resources; Susie Kocher, UCCE natural resources advisor in the Central Sierra Multi-County Partnership; and Tapan Pathak, UCCE specialist in Climate Adaption in Agriculture at UC Merced, to conduct the survey.
