Copyright First Responders in the Northwest
Copyright First Responders is a program created by Kyle Courtney to train cultural institution professionals in copyright basics and then provide a framework for mutual support and continuing education in order to enable them to help fill the growing demand for copyright information. Initially begun with academic libraries, it has expanded to include all library types and archives and museums as well. We’re not lawyers and don’t provide legal advice, but we are members of our communities, so can incorporate information about community standards, potential cultural issues, and the like. While the training would need to be adjusted for non-US locations, the system can be effective for communities or groups anywhere.
