centerforsocialmedia.org: copyright issues The video on this site does a great job of explaining when and how educators can use copyrighted materials under the "fair use" doctrine. We have more freedom than some people think!
This site examines the notion of 'fair use' by comparison to copyright in a digital age. This is a key issue we need to be aware of as digital citizens- authorship of work. Part of participating in the digital world means we enjoy remediating old texts and sharing items, but this could also mean we are breaching copyright infringements! We need to know both our rights and responsibilities here.
