Madigan Library fittingly provided the venue Tuesday for an interactive panel discussion designed to increase faculty/staff literacy about using third-party works as resources and inspiration. Sponsored by Penn College’s Copyright and Fair Use Advisory Group, “Intellectual Property Matters!”  helped employees and students navigate the legal and responsible use of others’ works and to determine when permission is necessary. Panelists included Eric K. Albert, an associate professor of machine tool technology and automated manufacturing; Kevin R. Derr, professor of legal assistant; and Austin White, an attorney with the McCormick Law Firm.
