As a Star Wars fan familiar with the “Mary Did You Know” song, I found the YouTube remix “Vader Did You Know?” song and video HILARIOUS today. Enjoy!

This video is a great example of fair use and legal video remixing. Show this to your students and discuss it. Is this legal? Are the creators going to be sued by Lucasfilm? Why or why not? See copyright and fair use resources from the Media Education Lab at Temple University for more on this. I also have helpful links (and a free chapter of my eBook) on the copyright page of playingwithmedia.com.

Hat tip to Dawn Pearce for sharing this.
