CopyrightX is a twelve-week networked course that has been offered annually since 2013 under the auspices of Harvard Law School, the HarvardX distance-learning initiative, and the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society. The course will next be taught from January to May of 2021.

The CopyrightX community has three components:
— a residential course on Copyright Law, taught by Prof. William Fisher at Harvard Law School;
— an online course divided into sections of 25 students, each section taught by a Harvard Teaching Fellow;
— a set of affiliated courses associated with universities and other institutions outside the United States, each taught by an expert in copyright law.

Anyone over the age of 13 is eligible to participate in CopyrightX’s online course free of charge, but enrollment is limited and admission is selective. Applications for admission to the 2021 online course will close in December 2020. To receive announcements and updates from the course team, including information about how to apply for future iterations of the online course, please join CopyrightX’s public mailing list.

More information about the structure and content of the course is available on the Course Overview page.
