As a researcher you will often be associated with creation of scholarly work that will fall within the scope of copyright law in your country. As creator of new knowledge and intellectual property, it is important for you to understand your rights associated with your work. Continuing from the Unit 1 in this module, we expand the copyright area in this unit to discuss authors’ rights, the controversy surrounding idea and expression, fair dealing and transfer of rights. We also identify and briefly discuss the international legal instruments related to copyright.
