Event description

Description

It has been said that content is king.

Copyrighted works – whether media, software, or art – are a major portion of the world’s creative, intellectual, and economic output. As such, copyright issues affect musicians, artists, authors, and software programmers alike.

This popular talk offers a fun and interesting look at the protection of your creative works of authorship whether developed in the lab at MIT or elsewhere.

Join Daniel Dardani, Technology Licensing Officer and intellectual property expert, for an overview of copyright law and consider its history, practice, and relevance to your world and to the MIT community.

Daniel will explore topics including: the nature of originality, fair use, open source, how copyrights can be licensed in the digital age, and others.

All are welcome. No prior knowledge about intellectual property or the law is required. This seminar is co-sponsored by the MIT EECS department.

This session is part of the "Intellectual Property Speaker Series" co-sponsored by the Technology Licensing Office and MIT Libraries. Lunch will be provided to attendees of the Intellectual Property Speaker Series events. Please register for the seminar and lunch.

FREE SWAG!

We will also be giving away some branded MIT Libraries and Technology Licensing Office swag to participants who attend any 6 sessions from this series, so please check out our other sessions! http://mit_tlo.eventbrite.com
