Copyright on Campus Video

   March 3rd, 2011 Brian Herzog

I think this is reatively new - the Copyright Clearance Center has released a very good overview video about "Copyright on Campus"

This is a follow-up to their "Copyright Basics" video, and is among others in the series of educational tools and guidelines. Hopefully the next one will be "Copyright in Public Libraries," but it's all useful - thanks for sharing, Katie.

It also occurred to me that this format might be a good vehicle for an "ebooks basics" tutorial - except, regardless of how informative it might be, I think that would be an ultimately unpleasant video.

Fair(y) Use Tale

   May 19th, 2007 Brian Herzog

Here's an interesting video explaining copyright law and Fair Use, using only clips from Disney videos. It's funny, informative and surprisingly clear: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJn_jC4FNDo

Found through Boing Boing.
