Fair Use in Everyday Life
Wednesday, September 22
2:00PM - 4:00PM
Walter 101

Fair use is a vital part of copyright law for scholars, researchers, artists, and just about anyone who communicates with anyone else. Quotation, criticism, review, collage, parody - all involve aspects of fair use. In this workshop for faculty and instructors, we'll discuss examples of fair use situations in visual arts, music, and video, as well as in academic research and writing. We'll learn to identify situations where fair use applies, and other situations where copyright answers may be more straightforward. We'll also develop our understandings of the factors that determine whether a use is "fair" and practice applying these concepts with real-world examples. Expect to think hard, debate a little, and have some fun. No direct legal advice will be provided; this workshop is informational and educational in nature. Satisfies RCR continuing education awareness/discussion requirements.
