The Professional Learning Centre
Faculty of Information Studies, University of Toronto
presents a one-day course in Toronto and Ottawa (Canada)
COPYRIGHT IN PHOTOGRAPHS
Toronto: Friday, Nov. 21, 2003
Ottawa: Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2003
Instructor: Jean Dryden
Fee: $180 Toronto / $260 Ottawa
Amendments to the Canadian Copyright Act resulted in significant
changes to the rules governing copyright in photographs. The new
rules are complex, and not always easy to understand. They affect
both ownership and duration of copyright in photos. Anyone who
preserves or uses photographs must understand the impact of the
changes to the Act.
Through lecture, examples, discussion, and case studies, this course
presents the copyright rules that apply specifically to photographs
and the application of the rules within the overall context of the
Canadian Copyright Act. Participants will learn about the difference
between ownership of the physical object, and ownership of the
copyright in it. They will also learn how to analyze a copyright
problem and how to administer copyright in a photograph collection.
The course includes the following topics:
* An overview of the Copyright Act and how it works
* The rules which apply to photographs
* A systematic approach to analyzing a copyright problem
* Your responsibilities as a user of others' photos
* Government plans for copyright reform
Librarians, archivists and museum curators who are responsible for
photograph collections; photographers wishing to protect their
rights, and anyone who uses photographs to illustrate their work in
print or online.
