Fair Use and Academics

Inside Higher Ed logoConversation is building in higher education about academic rights to fair use. In Inside Higher Ed, the leading online news source for U.S. higher education, I discussed prevalent "Myths about Fair Use".  Example: "Myth #3: Fair use is easy for an academic--I can take whatever I want because everything I do is noncommercial."  In the Chronicle forChronicle of Higher  Education logo Higher Education, the leading print/online news source for academics, I discussed do's and don'ts for academics using fair use, which the Chronicle  called "The Common Sense of the Fair Use Doctrine." For example: "Don't confuse fair use with the open-source movement or Creative Commons."  In both cases, they've spurred some discussion and debate.
