Media Literacy 2.x: Employing Fair Use Educationally in a Remix Era
Jan 19th, 2010
2:45 PM - 3:45 PM
Governor's Ballroom A/B (fourth floor)Mountain Time
Session Type: Featured Session
Digital practices in education—everything from remix assignments to posting of material on Blackboard—provide new challenges to educational copyright policies and stretch far past existing educational and library exemptions. The doctrine of fair use, which permits reuse of copyrighted material under some circumstances, has become an ever more vital tool. The best-practices model pioneered at American University has greatly expanded the utility of fair use for filmmakers, online video makers, media literacy teachers, archivists, and OpenCourseWare makers. Their experience is valuable to librarians as they begin the same process.
