What is Fair Use!?

In an academic + learning setting we tend to beg, borrow and steal creatively from one another to enhance and build on a new design project – call it creative commons open source; however, some would probably say plain theft. Even though students can “get away with this to a certain extent, when one enters into the ‘real world’ it tends to be a bit more hazardous – i.e. costly.

Meticulously created by Professor Eric Faden of Bucknell University, “A Fair(y) Use Tale” is being distributed by the Fair Use Project at Stanford Law School provides this humorous, yet informative, review of copyright principles delivered through the words of the very folks we can thank for nearly endless copyright terms and cease and desist ultimatums…

You can watch on YouTube, use the stream from the Stanford site or download an MP4 (for the first 10 minutes of that 8 a.m. class!).
