The CCCC Committee on Intellectual Property monitors new intellectual property issues that may affect writing teachers, students, and researchers, and it advocates best intellectual property practices.
This committee is charged with addressing and providing guidance on intellectual property issues that affect CCCC and NCTE and that impact writing instruction generally. More specifically, the committee will:
Charge 1: Keep the CCCC and NCTE membership informed about intellectual property developments, through reports to the CCCC EC, other forums and new mediums, including the MemberWeb site.
Charge 2: Maintain a close working relationship with the Caucus on Intellectual Property and Composition Studies and related NCTE groups and staff.
Charge 3: Develop and update CCCC position and policy statements to guide writing teachers’ and researchers’ uses of course packs, electronic materials, issues of plagiarism, etc.
Charge 4: Address issues of concern to the organizations, such as interpretations of fair use, copyright debates, and evolving Intellectual Property policies and continue to be a resource to the NCTE DC officer for their work with lawmakers.
