Just a quick note in case you missed the show on Wednesday “Copyright and the Free Exchange of Information”, the story is featured today at the law school Web site with quotes and a summary. After today, read the full Widener Law Web site article by clicking here.
Many people share content they find on the Internet but are you doing it legally? How do you know for sure? Because, after all, something that is available on the Internet does not equal something freely available in the “public domain”, at least as defined by copyright law.
Get the answers to these and other questions in plain English from intellectual property and entertainment law expert Associate Professor Tonya M. Evans, on WITF Radio Smart Talk, Wednesday, July 25th 9:00-10:00 AM Eastern (89.5 and 93.3, Central PA, USA and available via live stream).
During the show you will:
- Learn how to avoid infringing copyright in the online environment
- Identify what’s considered fair use
- Learn how to protect and share your own literary and artistic productions; and
- Explore the free exchange of information debate
The discussion is based on Copyright Companion for Writers, by Tonya Evans.

Due to breaking news in the Penn State scandal and the NCAA presser, this morning’s interview on Radio Smart Talk (WITF) has been postponed and will be rescheduled. Please post your comments and questions about how copyright laws apply to and may be at odds with the free exchange of ideas in the new public commons known as the Internet.
I’ll make a note to address some of them during the interview.
Until then, here are some great resources in addition to our plain English legal reference guides, ebooks and teleclass audio downloads and our free e-Reports on various topics. One featured audio download directly on point for today’s topic is “Copyright for Writers on the Web”.
This topic is evergreen and ever-changing. So I look forward to the next opportunity to discuss it with you in the near future.
