Arnie Lutzker Teaching UMUC Course

I am currently teaching a month-long distance learning course for the Center for Intellectual Property Management of University of Maryland’s University College entitled “Copyright, Photos, Video, Art & Multimedia.” The goal of the course is to provide an understanding of how to legally and ethically create and use multimedia in the digital environment. The course will include units on copyright basics, e-readers and the first sale doctrine, digital streaming, Google books and orphan works, and digital downloading issues. This is the third time I have taught a formal course for UMUC, and I always enjoy the interaction with the professionals who enroll for the course as well as the challenging questions and creative ideas they bring to our virtual classroom.
