The video “A Fair(y) Use Tale” was created in 2007 by Professor Eric Faden of Bucknell University to illustrate key concepts of U.S. copyright law, exclusively using short clips from copyrighted Disney movies. The full video is 10 minutes, 14 seconds long.

The two videos we currently use to help educators better understand copyright in our Celebrate Oklahoma Voices workshops are:
Get Creative (a 2002 video introducing Creative Commons)

Copyright, What’s Copyright (a 2009 video from the Media Education Lab at Temple University introducing the basic concepts of US copyright law: It was designed to promote creativity and balance the rights of owners and users)
