Remixing Scholarship: When, Why, and How Using Copyrighted Material in Your Work Is a Good Thing

 

| Open Player in New Window

Patricia Aufderheide, a professor in the School of Communication at American University in Washington, D.C., and coauthor of Reclaiming Fair Use: How to Put Balance Back in Copyright, speaks on the best practices for using copyrighted material. U.S. copyright law not only provides limited monopolies for creators but also actively encourages unlicensed reuse of copyrighted material, most importantly through fair use. But knowing when and how to employ fair use can be a challenge. Aufderheide provides an overview of the latest research on legal trends and the results of creating codes of best practices in fair use in the academic environment.
