As pedagogy and scholarship grow and change with technology, more and more of what university professors do implicates copyright. More than any other, fair use is the legal doctrine that empowers members of the academy to do their jobs without having to ask or pay for permission.
Fair use experts Peter Jaszi and Brandon Butler from American University's Washington College of Law will describe the growth of the fair use doctrine and the ways that communities, including scholars, are taking advantage of their fair use rights to get things done.
Our next event in our multi-consortium webinar series will be “Fair Use Without Fear in the Academy” at Noon (Eastern Time) on February 18, coordinated by our friends at the Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC).
More details and registration can be found at http://bit.ly/1m5AMIB . The webinar is free and open to all interested members.
