Sharing information isn't risk free!

It's easy and potentially costly to fall foul of copyright in the Interet age. We're increasingly presented with more sophisticated ways of sharing information and collaborating with each other yet individuals regularly share and display information that is copyright protected.

So it was great to be reminded of how risky it can be to share information in the article "The Risky Business of Information Sharing"

In the article the author looks at the following:

  • What is copyright and why is it important
  • What's protected by Copyright
  • How employees use Information
  • Who should take responsibility for compliance
  • Creating a compliance policy
  • Managing compliance

This is a really useful (albeit U.S focused) article on complying with copyright law.
