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 2017. The application for the 2017 CopyrightX online sections is now closed. Applicants will receive an admissions decision from the address admissions at copyx.org by January 23, 2017.
The CopyrightX community has three components:
— a residential course on Copyright Law, taught by Prof. William Fisher to approximately 100 Harvard Law School students;
— 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 enroll in CopyrightX’s online course free of charge, but enrollment is limited.
