In this eCourse expert educator Butler will guide you through the specific applications of U.S. copyright law common to workshops, lesson plans, tutorials, and other presentations. You will learn how to assert your “fair use” rights, and also how to efficiently seek permission from rightsholders when necessary.  For reference during and after the course, your purchase includes the PDF version of Butler’sCopyright for Teachers and Librarians in the 21st Century.
