Media & The Law: What journalists need to know about copyright & defamation suits

Knowing the essentials of copyright and libel laws is critical for newsroom journalists and independent freelancers -- especially in an increasingly litigious media environment.

Media lawyers report a significant uptick in defamation lawsuits brought against journalists by plaintiffs who don’t want to be called on their false narratives or want to punish reporters for their work. Some of these lawsuits are getting farther in the court system than they used to, costing journalists and news organizations precious time and money.

Copyright violations are a risk for media professionals, too. In an era of artificial intelligence and social media, journalists need to be aware of copyright and fair use law when working with digital content, especially when it is easy to cut, paste, and distribute content online.

Join the National Press Club Journalism Institute for a webinar with attorney Chad Bowman of Ballard Spahr, who will outline copyright and libel law essentials for today’s media environment and take questions to help journalists and freelancers understand their rights and how to follow the law.

Election 2024: Crafting sharp & responsible headlines for your political stories

Headlines are the most important starting point of a story. A good one both informs and piques a readers’ interest, encouraging them to read on. But in an era of search engine optimization and short attention spans, writing a good one is harder to do -- especially when it comes to political stories.

Please update to this sentence: Join the National Press Club Journalism Institute and Resolve Philly's Modifier for a free webinar examining the craft of writing and framing a headline for a political story; the different types of headlines to use depending upon the story; and the pitfalls of using sensationalized or misleading language. Participants will practice writing and rewriting a few headlines to get practical experience in producing responsible headlines for your 2024 election coverage.

Data Journalism Bootcamp - Google Sheets + Python (In-Person)

IRE’s Data Journalism Bootcamp provides a broad foundation in finding, assessing and analyzing data for anyone interested in using these skills in the newsroom. This version of the bootcamp is tailored for people who already have some experience working with data. We'll start with an accelerated overview of using spreadsheets to clean and analyze data, and then introduce Python, a powerful general-purpose programming language that you can use to analyze huge datasets, scrape data from the web, clean and reshape data, extract complex tables from PDF files and much more. We’ll also cover finding data sources, using public records, bulletproofing your analysis and best practices for using numbers in your stories. Attendees are asked to bring their own laptop and pre-install some software prior to the bootcamp. If a laptop is not available, we would be happy to provide one for you. Please reach out to logistics@ire.org to make arrangements.
