  • Introduction  Training organizations need to consider legal and ethical issues with regard to  Copyright  Fair use  Privacy policies  Intellectual property
  • Copyright Basics Copyright is a form of protection provided by the laws of the United States  to the authors of “original works of authorship”  including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works  It is illegal for anyone to violate any of the rights to the owner of copyright  Rights are not unlimited in scope
  • Legal and Ethical - Copyright  Training may experience copyright infringement  Students may conduct unauthorized duplication or distribution of materials  Unlawful file sharing  Pirated tests can impact assessment effectiveness  Use the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)  Increases the punishment of copyright infringement on the Internet, and attempts to discourage unlawful reproduction of online content
  • Fair Use  Limitations to copyright are specified exemptions from liability  One major limitation is the doctrine of “fair use”  Factors to consider in analysis  purpose and character of your use  nature of the copyrighted work  amount and proportion of the whole work was taken  effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work  Copyright protects the particular way authors express themselves  It does not extend to any ideas, systems, or factual information conveyed in a work  Get permission to use the work
  • Legal and Ethical - Fair use  Students may use for teaching, research, comment, or news reporting, not all can be considered fair use  For instance, a student could use a small portion of an author’s material to make a point on a subject they wish to emphasis.  This is supported by an example of a biographer of Richard Wright quoted no more than 1% of Wright’s unpublished letters for informational purposes.
  • Privacy Policy  A statement or a legal document that discloses some or all of the ways a party gathers, uses, discloses and manages a customer or client's data  Ensure confidentiality  Enhance security  Build trust and reputation
  • Legal and Ethical Issues Privacy policy  Training must consider computers used by students  Hacking done by students or employees, cyber bullying  Introducing Malware, scams into training computers  Trainings use of IT can impact students through  Collecting personal info on students and selling info  Safeguarding or destroying student data  All information is protected under a privacy policy and the Federal Education Records Protection Act
  • Intellectual Properties (IP)  A legal concept which refers to creations of the mind for which exclusive rights are recognized  Owners are granted certain exclusive rights to a variety of intangible assets,  musical, literary, and artistic works  discoveries and inventions  words, phrases, symbols, and designs  Copyrights protect IP
  • Legal and Ethical Intellectual Properties  Training or education should designate in writing what is considered their intellectual property to prevent conflict with employees  If a company hired a worker to design computer curriculum, all parties must agree/establish who has the intellectual property rights
  • Conclusion  Training organizations need to  Be aware of student activity within the training environment  Know how to identify Potential ethical and legal violations  Copyright, fair use, intellectual property, privacy policy  Know how to avoid or handle violations  Work with employees to avoid intellectual property or privacy policy violations  Teach students ethical and legal policies
