Fair use Fair use is a limitation and exception to the exclusive right granted by copyright law to the author of a creative work. In United States copyright law, fair use is a doctrine that permits limited use of copyrighted material without acquiring permission from the rights holders. Examples of fair use include commentary, search engines, criticism, parody, news reporting, research, teaching, library archiving and scholarship. Fair use is one of the traditional safety valves intended to balance the public's interest in open access with the property interests of copyright holders. Fair use under United States law[edit] The legal concept of "test copyright" was first ratified by the United Kingdom of Great Britain's Statute of Anne of 1709. The four factors of analysis for fair use set forth above derive from the opinion of Joseph Story in Folsom v. Once these factors were codified as guidelines in 17 U.S.C. § 107, they were not rendered exclusive. Purpose and character[edit]

Veille technologique du 26 août au 2 septembre Fury at BBC’s ‘anti-Scottish’ broadcast Saturday, 28 August 2010 16:04 Politicians and members of the public have reacted with fury after a BBC Radio 4 broadcast heard commentators describe Scots as living off of benefits provided by the English and describe the Scottish parliament as a “charade of a building” inhabited by MSPs who “crawl out of the darkness”. The comments were made on the radio programme ‘Any Questions’ by Baroness Ruth Deech who is a former Governor of the BBC and Douglas Murray who is the Director of The Centre for Social Cohesion (CSC). The comments have resulted in a stream of complaints to the BBC. The show, broadcast on Friday 20th August, heard Baroness Deech claim that Scots lived off of benefits paid for by English subsidies and that the release of Abdelbaset Al Megrahi had embarrassed the rest of the UK. Deech said:“Alright, they're devolved, but I think they did this [Megrahi release] just to show the rest of us oh, that we are independent, we make our own decisions,” Hello Kind RegardsNewsnet Scotland

Business Coach Anne Loehr Tries to Bridge Diverse Generations: X High atop the august Tower Club in Fairfax County, overlooking the glass-and-steel edge city of Tysons Corner, business coach Anne Loehr is teaching 20 executives, mainly baby boomers, how to crack one of society's most vexing workplace problems -- how to deal with their youngest employees or clients. Loehr, 44 (Generation X/self-identified boomer), asks the class: "What is it like to speak to Gen Y?" In her seminar, "Get Wise With Gen Ys: How to Effectively Sell to Each Generation in Today's Workplace," Loehr zeroes in on people born in the late 1970s or early 1980s, a demographic cohort so mystifying to its elders that she hands out cheat-sheet wallet cards enumerating traits that supposedly define this exotic generation. This is, she explains, the first time in American history when four generations -- people born from the 1930s all the way to the 1980s -- are jammed together in the workplace, jostling for hegemony. Talk like what, exactly?

New Data Visualization Tool for Journalists Created by Knight Professor Sarah Cohen, the Knight Professor of the Practice of Journalism and Public Policy at Duke University's Sanford School of Public Policy, figured there had to be an easier way for journalists to organize their notes on chronological events. 'Time and place are two of the most important aspects in stories,' Cohen said. 'Most reporters I know are still keeping a 40-page chronology in Word for long running stories.' So, with a grant from Duke, Cohen hired two research scientists, Fernanda Viegas and Martin Wattenberg, to design a visual tool to allow reporters to not just organize their notes more effectively, but to also see the results of their research over time. In this image, the tool tracked President Obama's first 100 days in office, by his location. Viegas' and Wattenberg were the brains behind the IBM Many Eyes project and now work for Google. 'Say you're working on the BP story, you can say, 'I only want to see what happened in May having to do with birds,''' Cohen explained.

Phone hacking: Met police put on spot by ignored leads and discreet omissions | Media Somewhere in the offices of the Crown Prosecution Service, there is a file that will be of great interest to any independent inquiry that attempts to tell the truth about the behaviour of the Metropolitan police in the phone hacking scandal at the News of the World. The Guardian has read it. The police were dragged into the centre of the scandal last week when the New York Times quoted unnamed detectives claiming that Scotland Yard's "close relationship" with the News of the World had hampered the inquiry. Essentially, the Met is charged on two counts: first, that it cut short its investigation; second, that it then failed to tell the truth to the press, public and parliament. The police insist that they are innocent on both counts. The unpublished CPS file shows the inquiry started well. They wrote: "A vast number of unique voicemail numbers belonging to high-profile individuals (politicians, celebrities) have been identified as being accessed without authority.

La Tercera, otro que retrocede con su rediseño Hace algunos días, revisando el rediseño de, explicaba que un diario del año 2010 debe convertirse en un centro multitarea, un espacio que sea digital por convicción e impulsor de la participación y la vida online de quienes llegan a visitarlo. Dos versiones de arriba la anterior y abajo la vigente desde el 1 de agosto La misma vara es la que uso entonces para medir el rediseño que “La Tercera” presentó hoy, ya que por tratarse de uno de los dos diarios más importantes de Chile, la expectativa es muy alta. Se espera un avance y un “salto” respecto de lo que había. Debo decir también, que como dirigí al equipo que hizo la primera versión de ese diario digital en 1997, siempre me interesa lo que salga desde Vicuña Mackenna. Para analizar desde lo general a lo particular, un diario como “centro multitarea” es el que me ayuda a ejecutar acciones a partir de lo que reviso. Adicionalmente, el medio tiene que aprender a partir de lo que hace el lector que lo visita.
