This presentation, Copyright for Educators, was shared at the ITSC 2009 Conference in Portland, Oregon, on February 16, 2009, by Wesley Fryer. This presentation is also available via Slideshare as a synchronized multimedia slide presentation also. (See the podcast shownotes for the link and other referenced resources.) The session description was: Teachers, principals, and students all need to understand not only the basics of US copyright law as they relate to the creation and publication of media products, but also the opportunities presented for LEGAL remixing and reuse of media materials licensed through Creative Commons. This session presents practical suggestions for schools, educators, and students to avoid intellectual property liability problems and empower learners to LEGALLY create as well as share a wide variety of media/knowledge products on the global stage. We will focus specifically on fair use provisions of US copyright law and address common misconceptions about fair use which often inhibit/chill legal educational uses of multimedia materials.
