Your library has been creating content for websites and blogs for years, and now it’s moving into adding sounds, songs and video. You know just what type of clip you want, but have an uneasy feeling about its copyright status. Do you have a right to use it? Is there podsafe content you can use?

This webinar will help you analyze the legal rights attached to sounds, songs and video you find online and offline. It will walk you through safer approaches to using audiovisual content you want to use to make your podcasts sing!

At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the concept of podsafe music and sounds
  • Identify at least three good sources
  • Be familiar with best practices in evaluating Fair Use when using video and audio
  • Know what to ask for when requesting permission from copyright owners

This webinar will also be of use to reference staff who field questions from the public about copyright issues.

Webinars are free of charge and registration is only done on the day of the event on the WebEx server. No passwords are required.
