Using Copyrighted Material

Thursday, January 05, 2023 at 1:00pm to 2:15pm

Virtual Event

Most things that you create incorporate things created by other people. Whether it’s quotes and figures from the scientific literature, or images used in an art project, “third-party content” is a part of most creative endeavors. In this session, learn when you need permission and how to get it.


Katie Zimmerman is the Director of Copyright Strategy for the MIT Libraries, where her role is to guide copyright decisions for use of library materials, negotiate content licenses, and help the Libraries and MIT community create and use copyrightable works to the fullest extent of the law. She has been with the MIT Libraries since 2016, and holds an M.L.I.S degree from the University of Pittsburgh and a J.D. from Harvard Law School.

Peter Bebergal is the Institute Use of Name Officer and also responds to incoming copyright requests for MIT owned images, video footage, and other materials. He has been with MIT for over 14 years.
