Since WPI Interactive Qualifying Projects (IQPs), Major Qualifying Projects (MQPs), theses, and dissertations are now published online and often distributed to a sponsor, you need to pay close attention to copyright law. You need to consider such issues as:
Can I copy an image from a commercial Web site?
May I use a chart or table from an article in my MQP, IQP, thesis or dissertation?
Do I own the copyright to my MQP, IQP, Sufficiency, Thesis or Dissertation?
For online projects it is not enough to simply cite your source with a citation; copyright permissions are required for works under copyright protection. This workshop will explain basic copyright as it relates to your project as well as show you how to find free-to-use images and other resources for your project work.
