Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Online Video

Unattributed, Center for Social Media, Jul 27, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is a good guide and it is important to remind people that they have the right to fair use as outlined within it. For example, "Video makers have the right to use as much of the original work as they need to in order to put it under some kind of scrutiny." And "Fair use protects the creative choices of video makers who seek their material in real life. Where a sound or image has been captured incidentally and without pre-arrangement, as part of an unstaged scene, it is permissible to use it." Indeed, I think we need to be more assertive about out rights under fair use. Via EDUCAUSE RSS.
