This course was very enriching to me and shed a light upon many doubts I had concerning copyright. I strongly recommend it.

Excelente material y las explicaciones,, ejemplos y maestros fueron altamente funcionales para aprender mas sobre el derecho de autor.

Great course! The instructors were very knowledgeable and entertaining. I loved that they used concrete, real-world examples and examples that directly related to libraries. They used a couple of legal terms during one of the videos that I had to go look up, but other than that, the content was very helpful and I will definitely use the handouts they supplied. Thank you!

A thorough and well-constructed course.
