"Use It or Lose It: Copyright and Fair Use for Researchers and Scholars"

Gain insight into the baffling, fascinating world of copyright law, an understanding of the mysterious Fair Use privilege, and answers to a common question: “Can I reproduce portions of a copyrighted work, without permission, for purely scholarly purposes?” 

The TU College of Law is bringing together a diverse group of recognized scholars in the areas of law, literature, library science, and museum administration to discuss these crucial issues in a public forum that will encourage audience participation.
