CopyrightX:UCT is a member of the CopyrightX Community, a network of affiliated courses offered by several universities and other institutions during the first semester of each year.
CopyrightX:UCT consists of the Harvard pre-recorded lectures, accompanied by reading materials relating to U.S. and South African copyright law. Weekly online seminars will discuss the pre-recorded lectures and will more closely analyse South African Copyright law and the issues faced. Particular attention will be drawn to the development side of copyright and the ongoing copyright law revision process.
Join us for this free weekly course which is more relevant than ever in light of South Africa's changing copyright law landscape.
Weekly sessions will be held on Wednesday evenings from 17 February to 21 April 2021. The sessions will start at 17:00 (SAST) and last for 60 to 90 minutes.
The optional 96-hour take-home exam will tentatively take place in May 2021.
