This is interesting to me as an educator. I too have heard about pinterest and all the positives about it but have never tried it. I never thought about it when educating students about copyrights. This article relates to teachers because it talks about how we can be creative and get ideas from the board in pinterest but still cite and give credit where it is due. Instead of teachers being scared of copyrighting, they can show students how to make a citation for an image or any piece of information they use and talk about it in class. This directly relates to the principles in chapter 8 because it talks about citations and giving credit whenever something we take and use is not ours. Monster Communications, Inc. v. Turner Broadcasting Sys. Inc., 935 F. Supp. 490 (S.D. N.Y. 1996) talks about how makers of a movie biography of a Muhammad Ali boxing film used 41 seconds of a boxing clip in their biography. They makers did not get into trouble because their intent was informational and it was only a small piece of the film taken.

Super timely article Charlie. You covered the importance of copyright issues in borrowing the intellectual property of others--regardless of the course. The Monster v Turner case is relevant with a nice summary of the rationale behind the ruling.

This blog talks about how one can go about getting a copyright and how it will last a lifetime plus another 70 years. An interesting piece I found in this article that teachers really have to pay attention to is the "fair use" clause when talking about copyrights. Technically teachers arent supposed to use copyrighted items in class but if they can prove they used the least amount of copyrighted work necessary, they fall under the fair use category. This author believes that teachers need to spend more time talking about the importance of copyright and if they have a license to play a movie, why this is important. Again, this article talks about the "fair use" clause in the copyright law and the appropriate legal way to play copyrighted work in the classroom. This article also talks about the Copyright Act of 1976 and a bit about common law and how it protects all intellectual products before they are published. A court case that talks about fair use is the Love V. Kwitny, 772 F. Supp. 1367 (S.D.N.Y. 1989). In this case, an author published more than half of an unpublished manuscript to prove that someone was involved in the overthrow of the Iranians government. This was declared not in fair use because the work was taken and wasnt published yet. This would also be dealing with statutory law because its dealing with legislators.

Since the Fair Use Law -- is a law, the referent is statutory. Further discussion of the Love case brings in common or case law. Most legal issues include case, statutory -- and ultimately constitutional law. I am glad you selected this article that explicates the nuances of Fair Use law.

As I read many blogs this past weekend, I found out that Scrappin Doodles is being sued for selling Dr. Suess clip art. It is such a shame, but anything that is copyrighted can not be re-created in another version.
