ER&L is streaming the ACRL Fair Use Week Webcast. Details from ACRL included below, full details here.
Join us for the free ACRL Presents webcast, “Celebrating Fair Use Week: Does Fair Use Really Work?,” on Tuesday, February 24, 2015, from 1:00 — 2:00 p.m. Central time.  Fair use seems obscure and difficult to many. Especially after the Appeals Court ruling in the Georgia State case, we may find ourselves wondering if it is really a workable approach to balancing the rights of creators with socially desirable uses. Yet many other countries are seeking to emulate what they see as the benefits of fair use. In this webinar, we will try to unwind some of the complexity of fair use. We will consider the role of context in making fair use decisions and suggest strategies for deciding when to turn to fair use and how to think through the analysis.

Learning outcomes:

  • Learn about some of the rationale behind an open-ended copyright exception like fair use.
  • Gain a greater understanding of how fair use works and when it is applicable to a specific situation.
  • Gain greater confidence when making fair use decisions.

Presenter: Kevin Smith, Director, Copyright & Scholarly Communication, Duke University Libraries
