ONLINE COPYRIGHT COURSE LAUNCHED FOR AFRICAN JOURNALISTS – EJN
A new (free) online training course to help journalists in Africa become more aware of their rights and responsibilities in terms of copyright has launched on 19 September, by the Ethical Journalism Network (EJN), in partnership with the Federation of African Journalists (FAJ) and Thomson Foundation, with funding from the Norwegian-based Kopinor Licensing agency.

As the new course explains, there are many practical steps that journalists and newsrooms can take to protect their own rights and make sure that they respect the rights of others.
