I learned about the following student-created Southpark parody video today entitled “Genocide: Lost in Translation” from Joyce Valenza. This is a great example of a transformative, creative work which arguably meets US fair use copyright provisions because of its transformative nature.
Take a few minutes to watch the video, it is just 3 minutes long. Isn’t it amazing how many issues the student is able to communicate and highlight in just 180 seconds? I like how the student used a green ribbon to indicate when real-life statistics were used as the basis for character dialog:
I first learned about the genocide in Darfur in January 2006 because of a videoconference I helped facilitate at the Texas Tech International Cultural Center. The US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C.’s Committee on Conscience website and Voices on Genocide Prevention podcast are excellent sources to use in advocacy and research efforts focused on Darfur and the continuing tragedy there.
