Video Introduction to Understanding Fair Use

A couple of weeks ago I shared a post about Wesley Fryer's presentation Copyright for Educators. If you haven't seen the presentation, I highly recommend viewing it. While Mr. Fryer's presentation is great, it is an hour long and probably a little bit more than you can or need to share to with students that are just beginning to learn about copyright. That's where this excellent video from the Temple Media Education Lab comes in handy. This three minute music video provides a good introduction to fair use.


Applications for Education
This video is good for introducing students and colleagues to the basics of copyright and fair use. The Temple Media Lab provides an excellent collection of case studies, FAQs, and lesson plans for teaching about fair use of copyrighted materials in education.
