Can I Use That? Fair Use in Everyday Life
Fair use is a vital part of copyright law. Quotation, criticism, review, collage, parody - all involve aspects of fair use. Participants in this workshop for faculty and instructors will develop an understanding of the complexities of fair use, and recognize situations where it might apply. We'll also look at other situations where copyright answers may be more straightforward. Participants will explore fair use concepts using examples from visual arts, music, and video, as well as academic research and writing. Expect to think hard, discuss a little, and have fun! No direct legal advice will be provided; this workshop is informational in nature. Satisfies RCR continuing education awareness/discussion requirements.
