Online Harvard Law School Course by CopyrightX: Register by Dec 10

About CopyrightX

CopyrightX explores the current law of copyright; the impact of that law on art, entertainment, and industry; and the ongoing debates concerning how the law should be reformed. Through a combination of recorded lectures, assigned readings, weekly seminars, live interactive webcasts, and online discussions, participants in the course examine and assess the ways in which the copyright system seeks to stimulate and regulate creative expression.

About the Course

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 2020.

The CopyrightX community has three components:

  1. A residential course on Copyright Law, taught by Prof. William Fisher at Harvard Law School.
  2. An online course divided into sections of 25 students, each section taught by a Harvard Teaching Fellow.
  3. 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 participate in CopyrightX’s online course free of charge, but enrollment is limited and admission is selective.
