I took this class last spring and highly recommend it if you are interested in an in-depth introduction to copyright.

Harvard Law School offers Free Online Course on Copyright Law

After a successful first experience in 2013, Professor William Fisher will offer the networked course, CopyrightX, again this spring, under the auspices of Harvard Law School<http://www.law.harvard.edu/>, the HarvardX<https://www.edx.org/school/harvardx/allcourses> distance-learning initiative, and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society<http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/>.  The course explores the current law of copyright and the ongoing debates concerning how that law should be reformed. For more information, please see http://copyx.org/.

Like the inaugural offering, in 2014 CopyrightX will offer an online course to approximately 500 participants, divided into 20 "sections," each taught by a Harvard Teaching Fellow. This group will constitute one of three layers within CopyrightX: the other two are the Harvard Law School course on copyright and "satellite" sections taught in countries other than the United States. Participants in each layer will have the opportunity to engage with and learn from the participants in the other layers.

The 500 students in the online component of CopyrightX will be selected through an open application process that opens on December 13 and closes on December 23. We welcome diverse and international participation; please read about admissions process here: http://copyx.org/logistics/admission/.
