ACRL is offering an online course called “Recent Developments in Fair Use” which may be of interest to CCUMC members. Here’s a blurb from the course website:

“Over four weeks, get up to date in copyright law, with a particular emphasis on fair use. The first week will be devoted to an overview of current U.S. copyright law, with special attention to areas of the law that affect libraries. Topics will include the first sale doctrine, varying interpretations of the distribution right, copyright term extension and restoration, and intermediary liability. The second week will cover fair use in the area of electronic reserve, with particular attention to the Georgia State case. The third week will cover fair use in the area of mass digitization, with attention to Authors Guild v. HathiTrust and Authors Guild v. Google. The final week will explore additional fair use cases from the last decade alongside proposals for legislative reform of copyright in the United States.
