About the Event
- Does your library have any protection when images that it posts on its website or social media sites start proliferating onto other sites without permission?
- Does it have any protection when images of the staff, the public, library exhibits, or the library itself appear in social media without permission?
- Who owns those images?
- When can the library use images created by others?
This one-hour webinar includes a refresher and update to finding images in the public domain and asking permission for images that are copyrighted.
By the end of the webinar, participants will:
- Be introduced to TinEye.com, a phenomenal reverse image search tool
- Have a basic understanding of the legal protections the library’s images may have, and what they don’t have
- Be exposed to a takedown request and learn where to turn for help if they get one
- Be given sample language to use when asking permission to use an image, and to best ensure that the permissions given are legitimately from the copyright owner
Cost: no charge
