Guarding your organization’s blog, intranet and social media posts from copyright infringement

In today’s technologically enhanced era, employees are able to access copyright-protected music, images and text as a part of their daily work activities. Valuable information is easily shared with the touch of a button. How do you know if that amazing image you selected for your organization’s content is copyrighted? When do you need copyright permission and how do you go about securing it?

Awareness of the copyright implications and best practices in content reuse are important factors in making educated decisions about the use of copyright-protected materials.

  • What is and is not copyright-protected
  • Fair use—what it is and how it works
