Fair Use in a Day in the Life of a College Student Infographic Released | Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week In conjunction with Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week 2016, ARL is releasing an infographic that shows how a college student relies on fair use numerous times in a typical day. Fair use and fair dealing are vitally important rights for everybody, everywhere—students, faculty, librarians, journalists, and all users of copyrighted material. These doctrines provide balance to the copyright system by allowing the use of copyrighted resources without permission from the rightholder under certain circumstances, thereby promoting creative progress and accommodating freedom of expression. The “Fair Use in a Day in the Life of a College Student” infographic is freely available as a PDF to embed on blogs and websites and to print and hand out at events.

Stanford Copyright & Fair Use Center Free To Use and Share: Resources To Help Teach Kids (and Adults!) About Copyright and Creative Commons I've gotten a few requests lately for resources on how to teach kids (and adults!) about copyright. I've written before about how I don't think any lesson on copyright can be effective without an emphasis on creative commons and helping students choose licenses for their own work. To that end, I've also written before about how much love Edcanvas - a tool which recently changed its name to Blendspace. Enjoy! Direct link to this blendspace.

Educational Use of Media: Exemptions to the DMCA The 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act makes it illegal to bypass the software "locks" on DVDs and other digital media, colloquially known as Digital Rights Management. Every three years, however, the Copyright Office of the United States reviews petitions to create specific exemptions to this ban on circumvention. In the 2006 rulemaking, University of Pennsylvania professors Peter Decherney, Katherine Sender, and Michael Delli Carpini successfully petitioned for an exemption for media professors making clips for teaching purposes. Not only was their exemption granted, but they persuaded the members of the Copyright Office to reconsider the methodology used to evaluate potential exemptions. As a result, the exemption process began to come into line with fair use, and the door was opened for more and broader exemptions. In the 2009 rulemaking, Decherney, Sender, and Delli Carpini were joined by a coalition of organizations to propose an expanded exemption. How do I copy DVDs?
