Copyright questions about different formats (data, images, music and video) can be especially difficult. Sometimes the law specifically distinguishes between these different formats, and in most cases there are media-specific considerations that impact a copyright analysis. In this course we will look at four different media, paying special attention to the unique issues for each one and the kinds of information that is important when making copyright decisions for each type of material. We will work through fair use issues for each multimedia format, look at format-specific exceptions in the law, and consider unique issues for seeking permission for film, music, images and data.

TOP REVIEWS FROM COPYRIGHT FOR MULTIMEDIA
I don't know how you did it; you made the subject of copyright law fascinating. And you clearly and presented very important and useful information. Thank you.
I passed all my quizzes but would have really benefited from more specific feedback to any answers I got wrong. It was hard to reflect on why the answer I chose was incorrect without this feature.
Good course! The only thing I would change is to drill down a little more on public performance rights in music, as it's a super confusing area of the law.
Excellent course, incredibly informative and very well taught. Highly recommend to anyone interested in entertainment as well as the laws and liability involved.
