Copyright and Licenses

Do copyright and licenses confuse you? Join us on this two session workshop with Niel Chue Hong from SSI (Software Sustainability Institute) to learn about how to correctly use copyrighted material and find out about best practices on copyright for your own work. 

Each workshop runs on a Monday from 14:00 - 15:00 and will take place on Microsoft Teams.

15/03: Using copyrighted material - what you need to know 

This workshop will provide basic training on what you need to know about copyright, intellectual property and licensing for digital objects such as images, databases, and software / digital tools. This workshop will explain how this fits with the University's commitment to research integrity, go through some examples, and provide links to further information and resources. At the end, you should be better equipped to understand how to use someone else's material. 

22/03: Understanding copyright and licensing of your own work 

This workshop will cover what you need to know about copyright and licensing of your own work, principally publications, datasets and software (including code and scripts). This workshop will explain how licensing can be used to help increase the impact of your work, go through some examples, and provide links to further information and resources. At the end, you should be better equipped to understand how to license, publish and exploit your work.
