Copyright, Creative Commons, and Streaming Films @ UNCG Libraries

  1. 1. Find the video you need and avoid copyright issues Beth Filar Williams David Gwynn Electronic Resources and Information Technology Department, University Libraries @Andres Rueda [CC BY 2.0]
  2. 2. What rights does copyright grant? • Right to reproduce the work • Right to prepare derivative works • Right to distribute copies • Right of public performance • Right of public display
  3. 3. Classroom use: What’s OK? Almost anything, if it is: • Part of the instructional program • Shown only by students and instructors to students and instructors • In a physical classroom/education space • Students and instructors are in physical proximity • A legitimate, legal copy with copyright notice intact • Not used for entertainment or recreation
  4. 4. Can I record off TV? • Yes, but all the previously-mentioned conditions must be met. • Video must be shown within ten days of broadcast and destroyed within 45 days. • Face-to-face classroom use only.
  5. 5. What’s not OK? • “Ripping” a video or using any other technology for circumventing copy protection • Creating a digital backup copy of an analog video (VHS, for example) if a digital copy is available for purchase.
  6. 6. How about distance & online classes? TEACH Act (2002) permits digital transmission if: • Integral part of a single, typical class session. • Part of systematic, mediated instructional activity. • At the direction of or under the actual supervision of the instructor.
  7. 7. But there are limits: • Fair use (“reasonable and limited portions”) • Must be a legally-acquired copy (no “ripping” or circumvention of DRM) • Transmission limited to students and educators • Preclude retention of a usable copy as far as possible (streamed vs. downloadable) How about distance & online classes, con’t
  8. 8. • Actual damages • Profits • Statutory damages • Costs and attorney fees • Criminal liability • DMCA civil and criminal liability What are the penalties?
  9. 9. Scenario #1: I want to digitize my home movies of a protest demonstration in 1979 and use these materials in an online class. Can I? @ danny.hammontree [CC BY-NC-ND 2.0]
  10. 10. Scenario #2 How can I use material from an episode of NOVA that I recorded last year?
  11. 11. Scenario #3 Can I show a DVD in the classroom even if I just checked it out from the library or rented it, or do I have to own it? @john_a_ward [CC BY 2.0]
  12. 12. Scenario #4 Can I show a bootleg video of a Grateful Dead show to my online class? How about in the classroom? Can I make it available for download if it’s password-protected?
  13. 13. Creative Commons Basics • An nonprofit corporation created to assist content creators in bypassing the restrictions of copyright: • A license you can get for your own work to ensure that it can be shared (or used by) others. • Look for this CC in order to use work by others!
  14. 14. How Does It Work? …Creative Commons allows for “some rights reserved” • The creator gets to decide what those rights are rather than the law • protects free exchange of knowledge and collaborative work • Gives control back to the creator to say “Yes. Use my work.” Because copyright is all or nothing…
  15. 15. • Attribution by • Others may copy, distribute, display, create derivatives, and perform but only if give credit the way the creator requests. • Share Alike • Others may distribute derivatives under a license identical to yours. • Non-Commercial • Others may copy, distribute, etc but only for non- commercial purposes. • No Derivative Works • Others may copy, distribute, etc only verbatim copies and not derivatives.
