Copyright for Graduate Students

Graduate Thesis//MRP Week logo
Thursday, November 17, 2016 - 2:30pm to 4:30pm

What should graduate students know about copyright before incorporating portions of these protected works into theses or MRPs?  How can students ensure broad dissemination of their own work while affirming their rights using tools such as Creative Commons licences?  OCAD U librarians will discuss these questions and others pertinent to thesis/MRP production, provide an introduction to Canadian copyright law and suggest a framework for evaluating rights issues when using the work of others.

ACCESSIBILITY: Accessibility is important to us. If you require accommodations due to a disability in order to participate fully in this event, please email us as soon as possible so we can make the appropriate arrangements.

CopyCamp 2008

Friday, March 14, 2008 - 5:15pm to 6:00pm

Ever wondered how you’ll make a living after art school? Or whether copyright helps or hinders artists? CopyCamp is one way for artists to find out.

What is CopyCamp?
CopyCamp is a day-long ‘unconference’ about making art and making a living on the Internet. A forum organized by artists ( for debate and exchange on the super hot copyright issues affecting creators in all disciplines. The first CopyCamp was held at Ryerson last year. The second will be coming to OISE in April.

Want to volunteer for CopyCamp 2008?
Come meet the CopyCamp Team* on Friday, March 14 at 1:15 pm and learn more.
