Fair Use and Curation - Five Rules to Curate by

Fair Use and Curation - Five Rules to Curate by | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By Pawan Deshpande "Recently, Kimberley Isbell of the Nieman Journalism Lab cited a Harvard Law report and published an extensive post on news aggregation and legal considerations. From a curation perspective, the whole article is interesting, but what was the most surprising was that her recommendations for being an ethical content aggregator, were the same as being an effective content curator."

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

The author makes a strong case for his assertion that ethical content aggregation and effective content curation are synonymous. Deshpande's "5 Rules to being an Ethical Content Curator" are a solid start on a list of best practices for curation.

Fair Use Checklist | Columbia University Libraries

Fair Use Checklist | Columbia University Libraries | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

The Fair Use Checklist and variations on it have been widely used for many years to help educators, librarians, lawyers, and many other users of copyrighted works determine whether their activities are within the limits of fair use under U.S. copyright law (Section 107 of the U.S. Copyright Act). The four factors form the structure of this checklist.  Congress and courts have offered some insight into the specific meaning of the factors, and those interpretations are reflected in the details of this form.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

This page frames the use of a checklist developed by Kenneth Crews and Dwayne Buttler.  The checklist is available in PDF form and offers under a Creative Commons Licence.

Jef Mallett is constantly brightening my mornings with his comicstrip "Frazz."

As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing more that needs to be said about citations!

Fair use offers an extraordinarily important opportunity for educators, researchers, and others to make reasonable and limited uses of copyrighted materials. Clipping, cutting, pasting, uploading, posting, and many other activities that are common at the university may be copyright infringements or may be within fair use. When do you need to think about fair use? Some example situations:
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

One of the best websites for anyone seeking to understand fair use of copyrighted materials in education.  The fair use checklist developed by Kenneth Crews is a fine tool.

To start, simply click on the icon of the resource or activity that best describes what you want to do and follow an option to see how to use that material legally and where to find more information.

21CIF: The Four Factor Fair Use Test

21CIF: The Four Factor Fair Use Test | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Fair Use is a subtle concept and can only be decided in a federal court. However, if the use of the copyrighted materials has an educational purpose, is relevant to the lesson, part of classroom instruction and not broadcast or published for general consumption you are most likely protected by fair use.



Here are the four factors in a nutshell (for more information, we recommend checking the annotated resources for Fair Use)
