When can you use copyrighted materials without permission? How has fair use shifted recently? Join Patricia Aufderheide and Peter Jaszi for an interactive exploration and in-depth discussion of fair use in a multi-media context. Their presentation will be followed by a discussion of what’s next in fair use, led by Brandon Butler, and a reception with refreshments. Please RSVP to x3847 or LibEvents@american.edu
Some questions we think will be both asked and answered:
- My student made a really funny music video for class, based on the latest K-pop. How much trouble will she get in by uploading it to YouTube?
- I'm comparing media coverage of a hot political topic (Arab spring in February and now, say), and would like to show examples in my journal article. Do I have to get permissions? My contract with the journal says so.
- Oh, and how about in my conference presentation? Can I include some clips from broadcast TV that I had the library record?
- I want to put some video clips up on my Blackboard site, so students can see them before class. Will the library do that for me? Is it legal?
When is it fair and legal to use other people's copyrighted work to make your own? What's the line...
