This session is being run for students of the School of Social and Political Science (SPSS) and students participating in this year’s Edinburgh Digital Award.

Intellectual Property is everywhere today. Everything from social media, online learning, music and video streaming to peer-to-peer networks requires at least a basic understanding of copyright and how creative works are protected by copyright law and what are the rights of the content creators as well as the rights of the users.

This Copyright and IP Online course is well-suited to those who require a basic understanding of copyright law, licensing, and open educational resources. We’ll discuss copyright and open licensing related issues from the point of view of a student and that of an employee in a commercial organisation. Opportunities for questions and discussions will be ample.


Copyright IP Online course is an important way to build confidence, awareness and skills, enabling compliance with the law and open educational resources.


If you’re interested in us running a tailored workshop for your School or department please get in touch.
