THE BEST Intro to Copyright and Fair Use EVER!

I don’t know how many hours this took to make but it was worth every second!

Please share this gold.

Professor Eric Faden of Bucknell University provides this humorous, yet informative, review of copyright principles delivered through the words of the very folks we can thank for nearly endless copyright terms.

  1. Great resource! I love that each small clip falls under fair use so despite the video being made up of all copyright material, it’s still completely above board because the clips are so short (in my opinion anyway, I wouldn’t like to argue that in court).

    Love the site, it has been very helpful. However, the contrast on this site makes it very challenging to view. Any chance we’ll see a background change?

    • Mat says:

      nevermind….as soon as I posted the comment the background changed (added a white frame over the leaves)…apparently it was a browser glitch.

      Sheepisly,
      Mat

      Thanks for the feedback. Is it the leaf pattern that is making it hard on the eyes?

      Please let me know so I can come up with a better option.

      If you have any comments on the http://www.giveitaway.net/ site I’d love to hear them. People rarely make easily actionable commentary like this.

      Do you have a blog I could check out?

      Thanks again,
      Sean
