With the global reach of the internet, using and sharing content online is something we all do at some point but it's important to make sure you're not infringing someone else's copyrighted material. In her latest article, Clare Painter, Jinfo's copyright expert, highlights the risks involved in reusing someone else's work and how you can minimise them.
We know that information expertise is a prerequisite when it comes to helping us make smarter decisions but being able to evidence this and measure its impact over time can be problematic. What we can do is try and document the characteristics of the environment in which this goal is achieved and how information services contribute to creating those characteristics, this article looks at how we can set about doing this.
Although information teams have long known that their services are essential to creating transparent business operations, it is difficult to demonstrate those contributions through metrics. Breaking down what it means to be "transparent", and then documenting your contributions to those smaller elements goes a long way towards making your value more visible and quantifiable, Robin Neidorf explains how to achieve this.
This article explores how information professionals help organisations manage risk and how they can better communicate their work in areas such as copyright, terms and conditions, licensing, and ensuring accurate information for decision-taking.
Copyright ownership generally follows the creator of the material and there is no need to register it as it takes effect as soon as the work is created.

With the advance of the internet and its global reach, using and sharing content worldwide has never been easier. However, copyright laws differ from one country to another and whilst it would be impossible to familiarise yourself with them all, this article looks at some of the key differences between the UK, US and major European regimes to help you reduce any risk of infringing the law. It looks specifically at the differences between common and civil law, fair use and fair dealing, moral rights, registration and copyright exceptions.
Understanding copyright and licensing is a cornerstone of information work. Helping professionals learn about the issues from a practical perspective is Copyrightlaws.com.
