Educause Webinar for Librarians on Fair Use

Educause, the leading organization on higher education and information technology, highlighted the issue of Fair Use and best practices in a live webinar attended by hundreds and accessed by many more in archived form. Watch here.

Legal scholar Peter Jaszi and Center director Aufderheide explained to an audience largely composed of librarians the value of creating best practices codes that clarify how a particular community interprets the principles of Fair Use.

One particular community highlighted in the webinar -- university librarians face Fair Use issues daily, when professors ask to post films to an electronic classroom site, when distance learning involves sharing of copyrighted materials from their libraries, and when students and teachers use copyrighted material in their teaching generally.
