Copyright Awareness Week was conceived by the Copyright Society of the U.S.A as a means to create a greater understanding among the youth of America about what copyright is and the role it plays in the advancement of the arts and our economy. Copyright Awareness Week is an educational, nonpartisan event, intended to bring copyright creators and users together to educate the public about basic copyright law and its underlying purpose.
