Copyright Fair Use & How it Works for Both Images & Your Biz Stories

Copyright Fair Use & How it Works for Both Images & Your Biz Stories | Just Story It Biz Storytelling | Scoop.it
Copyright of images: What you need to know about publishing photos, images and videos online to make good decisions on fair use and avoid legal actions.
Karen Dietz's insight:

To help you stay on the straight and narrow, here is a handy guide for how to work with copyrights and fair use. Knowing the ins-and-outs of this topic is critical for both the stories you are telling, and the images you are using with your stories.


This weekend I was taking a workshop with the amazing storyteller Susan Klein. We had a lively discussion about storytelling. And we all shared experiences of telling a personal story and then sometime later being in the audience where the person on stage told OUR personal story as if it was theirs, without attribution. Bad bad bad.


So knowing the ethics around business storytelling (http://www.juststoryit.com/story-resources.htm), along with copyright and fair use will keep you out of trouble. Keept this guide handy!

Do stories ALWAYS persuade?? Narrative Persuasion in Legal Settings: What’s the Story?

Do stories ALWAYS persuade?? Narrative Persuasion in Legal Settings: What’s the Story? | Just Story It Biz Storytelling | Scoop.it

A new look at the narrative in legal settings with reactions from two trial consultants. To begin, researchers in the area of story-based persuasion draw a distinction between argument-based persuasive communications, also referred to as rhetorical communications, and story- or narrative-based persuasive communications.


Are people persuaded by a story or by rational rhetoric? Or a combination of both? Are YOU more persuaded by a story, rhetorical communications, or a combintion of both?


Hmmmm -- what interesting questions! This article tackling these questions is a bit of along read, so grab a cup of coffee one morning this weekend and dive in.


The conversations about storytelling these days promote the idea that everyone is persuaded by stories. Not so!! The researchers here took the context of trial lawyers to test this premis and find out what REALLY persuades people.


As it turns out, several factors come into play as to whether someone is persuaded by stories only. One factor is the individual's need for cognition like debate, solving puzzles, or considering complex problems.  Who knew??!!


Anyway, this is a very interesting article and really puts storytelling as a persuasive medium into context -- and expands our notions about stories, while also course-correcting our assumptions.


The language of the article is somewhat academic but nothing daunting. You will be able to easily get through it.


And I know it will help you get smarter and wiser about how and when to use stories for maximum impact.

Storytelling: The Shared Quest For Excellence in Document Review ... | Just Story It Biz Storytelling | Scoop.it
Storytelling is said to have no place in the hard-edged, logic driven, command-and- control culture to which the legal and business communities have grown accustomed. Euphemisms – like “business narrative” – have been ...


This is a great article focused on laywers, but has insights for us all.  The author talks about documents as narratives, suggesting they fall into three buckets:

  1. Linkage
  2. Gravity
  3. Resonance


He then goes on to suggest how to use those categories when crafting, reviewing, or using those documents and connecting them with implementation plans.  Very useful!


I know I'm going to start looking at my documents in slightly different ways now. Go read the article and get some ideas for how this might apply to your plans, proposals, and other documents.
