databases and images, but never seem to have the time to attend a course
or read an entire book on the topic? Copyrightlaws.com is pleased to
announce the offering of an online course on Digital Licensing.

How does it work? Sign up at http://www.acteva.com/go/copyright

beginning April 12, 2004, you will receive e-lessons for a total of 9
weeks. Just to make sure you pay attention to these e-lessons; each
e-lesson will include a self-marking Quiz. You will receive a Certificate

In addition, during the duration of the online course, participants will
be part of an exclusive discussion list where you may discuss the course
contents with the instructor and other course participants.
