- What rights do I have in works I author or create?
- What rights do authors and creators have under copyright law?
- I found some works I want to copy and use. It's a big bother to find out who owns the copyright and get permission. If I just copy the work, who will find out? Everyone else does it, why shouldn't I?
- This is a University. Can't I copy just about anything under Fair Use?
- The work I want to copy and use is really old. Hasn't the copyright expired?
- The work I want to copy is available on-line. Doesn't that mean it's in the Public Domain?
- The work I want to copy and use doesn't contain a copyright notice so I can copy it without getting permission, right?
- I bought the book, doesn't that mean I have a right to make copies of it?
- Clean Copy wanted to get permission from the publisher before it would make copies for me to distribute to my class so I had my department secretary make the copies I needed on the department copier. What's wrong with that?
- I know what works I want to include in my course packet and I know I need to get permissions, now what do I do?
- How much is this going to cost and who is going to pay for it?
- I think the Portland State Library might have a subscription to the journal from which I want to copy an article. Does that matter?
- What about on-line classes?
- Do I need permission to use foreign works?
- I still have questions. Who can help me sort them out?
