    16. 16. Writing Exercise <ul><li>In our lives, there are moments, decisive moments, when the direction of our lives was pointed in a given direction, and because of the events of this moment, we are going in another direction. Poet Robert Frost shared this concept simply as The Road Not Taken. The date of a major achievement, the time there was a particularly bad setback, meeting a special person, the birth of a child, the end of a relationship, the death of a loved one are all examples of these fork-in-the-road experiences. Right now, at this second, write about a decisive moment in your life. </li></ul><ul><li>You have 10 minutes. </li></ul>

Five Principles <ul><li>Educators can: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>make copies of newspaper articles, TV shows, and other copyrighted works and use them and keep them for educational use </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>create curriculum materials and scholarship with copyrighted materials embedded </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>share, sell and distribute curriculum materials with copyrighted materials embedded </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Learners can: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>use copyrighted works in creating new material. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>distribute their works digitally if they meet the transformativeness standard </li></ul></ul>
    20. 21. Fair Use Empowers <ul><li>MYTH: </li></ul><ul><li>FAIR USE IS TOO UNCLEAR AND COMPLICATED FOR ME; IT’S BETTER LEFT TO LAWYERS AND ADMINISTRATORS. </li></ul><ul><li>TRUTH: The fair use provision of the Copyright Act is written broadly because it is designed to apply to a wide range of creative works and the people who use them. </li></ul><ul><li>Fair use is a part of the law that belongs to everyone—especially to working educators. </li></ul><ul><li>Educators know best what they need to use of existing copyrighted culture to construct their own lessons and materials. Only members of the actual community can decide what’s really needed. Once they know, they can tell their lawyers and administrators. </li></ul>
    21. 22. Creative Commons
    22. 23. Code of Fair Use Helps <ul><li>• To educate educators themselves about how fair use applies to their work </li></ul><ul><li>• To persuade gatekeepers, including school leaders, librarians, and publishers, to accept well-founded assertions of fair use </li></ul><ul><li>• To promote revisions to school policies regarding the use of copyrighted materials that are used in education </li></ul><ul><li>• To discourage copyright owners from threatening or bringing lawsuits </li></ul><ul><li>• In the unlikely event that such suits were brought, to provide the defendant with a basis on which to show that her or his uses were both objectively reasonable and undertaken in good faith. </li></ul>
