You'll also learn how to apply Creative Commons Licenses to your work and create presentations with good Copyright practices. Prior to the session, please register for a cIRcle account: .

Are there images or portions of published manuscripts you are planning to use in your thesis? In your presentations? Do you have concerns over how copyright laws may affect your use of these images?
