45 CARLETON ST, Cambridge, MA 02142

Explore the public domain in this hands-on workshop. When does copyright expire, and how do you tell when something is free to use? We will discuss the public domain and put then our skills to use on historical materials from the MIT Libraries. This session is presented in conjunction with MIT Libraries Public Domain Day celebration. It is part of the "Intellectual Property Speaker Series" co-sponsored with the Technology Licensing Office. Lunch will be provided to attendees of the Intellectual Property Speaker Series events. Please email if you'd like to attend lunch and also register below.


We will also be giving away some branded MIT Libraries and Technology Licensing Office swag to participants who attend any 6 sessions from this series, so please check out our other sessions!
