Fairuse

  1. 1. Copyright and Fair Use
  2. 2. Public Domain <ul><li>Older works that that are no longer protected by </li></ul><ul><li>copyright (being eroded by increasingly long </li></ul><ul><li>copyright terms…life of creator + 75 years) </li></ul>
  3. 3. Creative Commons <ul><li>Works that creators have licensed to be shared (with various restrictions: attribution, noncommerical, share alike, no derivations) </li></ul><ul><li>See flickr.com/creativecommons for images and http://search.creativecommons.org/ for all media </li></ul>
  4. 4. Plagiarism <ul><li>Using part or all of a work without giving credit to the author / creator (considered academic dishonesty). </li></ul><ul><li>Giving attribution/credit protects you from being charged with plagiarism but is NOT a defense against copyright infringement </li></ul>
  5. 5. Fair Use Considerations <ul><li>Purpose of the Use (analysis, parody or critique; transformative vs. derivative; educational vs. commercial) </li></ul><ul><li>Amount of the work (less is better, but no clearly accepted rule) </li></ul><ul><li>Commercial Impact (would the existence of this text reduce the value of the original?) </li></ul>
  6. 6. Radical Fair Use <ul><li>Center for Social Media attempts to document </li></ul><ul><li>the existing community standards for fair use of </li></ul><ul><li>amateur video (wouldn’t necessarily hold up in </li></ul><ul><li>Court the the “code of best practices” was </li></ul><ul><li>made by lawyers) </li></ul>
  7. 7. Possible Fair Use Defenses <ul><li>Sampling copyrighted material for the purpose of: </li></ul><ul><li>Commenting or critiquing </li></ul><ul><li>Providing illustration or example of a cultural phenomenon </li></ul><ul><li>Capturing material incidentally (e.g. song in background at a party) </li></ul><ul><li>Memorializing an event / experience / cultural phenomenon (e.g. video of concert or speech) </li></ul>
  8. 8. Key fair use defenses <ul><li>The remix video radically transforms the sampled content creating something new. </li></ul><ul><li>The remix video could not be a suitable substitute for the original. </li></ul><ul><li>The remix video follows accepted “community standards” on YouTube. </li></ul>
