Presented by Dr. Regina Greenwood, Dr. Eric Mason, Dr. David Kilroy, and Michele Gibney

Blurred Lines: Grey Areas in Copyright & Plagiarism

Thursday, October 27, 2016   |   Noon - 1PM   |  Law Library - Faculty Study Room, 2nd floor
Presented by Stephen Carlisle, NSU's Copyright Officer


Copyright infringement and plagiarism can be the same thing. But more often than not, they are two sides of the same coin. A student could use copyrighted material in a student project and it might be fair use, and not infringement. But if the student used copyrighted material and did not attribute it to an outside source, then this is plagiarism, and would subject the student to disciplinary proceedings. This seminar will examine both the issues of copyright infringement and the types of plagiarism and how they intersect in a university setting.

These online profile pages are aggregated in a searchable Experts Gallery that will allow prospective students, funding agencies, news outlets, and researchers looking for collaborators to search the NSU pool of expertise and view your online CV. Come and learn about this new project and how you can be involved!
