Making Copyright a "Go Sign": Collaboration on Copyright Education, Advocacy and Creation at Princeton


Copyright issues impact daily life in academic in teaching, learning, and research. Copyright is most often seen as a stop sign due to the lack of knowledge of copyright. This negative view of copyright could hinder the learning potential and limit possibilities in teaching and research. Lack of knowledge of copyright also could lead to misconduct, or even worse, a law-suit. In the past two years, we have made a series of efforts at Princeton to improve the campus’ knowledge about copyright and to change the view of copyright from negative to positive through collaboration among campus partners, primarily the general council and the library. This poster shows programs and initiatives on copyright education, advocacy and creation from collaboration at Princeton.
