MEDEAnet webinar "Copyright Considerations for Educational Media Producers", 13 December 2012, 4pm CET
During this one hour webinar/live quiz 38 participants from 10 countries learned about the most important IPR and copyright rules you have to respect when you are developing your own media content for educational purposes. Participants were invited to test their knowledge of copyright and other IPR issues by means of an interactive question and answer session hosted by quizmaster Mathy Vanbuel (managing director of ATiT, Belgium and Secretary of MEDEA/Media & Learning Association) while main jury member Jeroen Verschakelen from ICRI - KULeuven, an expert in copyright and media law, provided the relevant legal and practical comments on copyright for educational media producers.
Before the end of 2012, these two experts are still available to answer questions about copyright and related cases in the online discussion in the Media & Learning Community of Practice, so be sure to check it out.
This webinar was aimed at educational media producers as well as teachers, educators and trainers interested in developing their own educational media. In a time where all sorts of different content seem to be available for free on the internet - from books, pictures, music, film to comprehensive scientific texts – it is important to know how you can use this content and also how you can protect content you have developed yourself which you also want to share via the web.
Jeroen Verschakelen obtained degrees from the KU Leuven (Master of Laws, magna cum laude) and the Hogeschool-Universiteit Brussels (LLM in Intellectual Property Law, magna cum laude). He also participated in the Erasmus Mundus exchange program, spending one semester at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (USA). He has been working for ICRI since September 2012, where he will conduct research on data portability between social network sites and the regulation of social media in general.
