About the Fair Use | U.S. Copyright Office

About the Fair Use | U.S. Copyright Office | library | Scoop.it

Welcome to the U.S. Copyright Office Fair Use Index. ...Fair use is a longstanding and vital aspect of American copyright law. The goal of the Index is to make the principles and application of fair use more accessible and understandable to the public by presenting a searchable database of court opinions, including by category and type of use (e.g., music, internet/digitization, parody).

Tips For Acquiring Inexpensive STEAM Materials - Wee Warhols

Tips For Acquiring Inexpensive STEAM Materials - Wee Warhols | library | Scoop.it
I am a bit of a collector — some may say hoarder — of craft supplies or anything that I think my kids, myself, or my students can create or build with.  I love to hunt for cool items and I LOVE to get a good deal.  Before recycling or throwing anything away, I think, “What could we make with that?”  I realize that not everyone is like this and some people don’t want to sort through trash to find that cool treasure.  If you think that STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) education is costly, I’m here to let you know it doesn’t have to be. Please let me share some money-saving resources with you to help make incorporating STEAM into your home or classroom easy and affordable.

6000+ Children's Books Available for Free: Free Technology for Teachers

6000+ Children's Books Available for Free: Free Technology for Teachers | library | Scoop.it

The University of Florida's Digital Collections offers ahuge library of digitized children's books. 

 

All of the children's books in the collection can be read online. Reading the books online could be a bit difficult for some as there is a border with menus surrounding each page of the books. To avoid that, you can print all of the books for free. The printed version does not display anything but the book as it was scanned.

A video of someone writing on a whiteboard (such as writing animations).


Why are they popular?

They are entertaining and fun. Plus they keep people's attention, up to 15% more than "talking head" videos or PowerPoints. Check out a whiteboard video explaining why they're popular.

24 February 2015, by Monti Aguirre

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Press Release: Coca Cola Sued by Chilean artist Alejandro Escribano for Art Plagiarism.

We wish to report a criminal complaint filed by plagiarism against Coca-Cola Company. This is the exact reproduction of a painting mural that was destroyed by the tsunami of February 27, 2010 in the town of Dichato, Chile. The mural was duly registered with the Department of Intellectual Rights Dibam 2012. The lawsuit, filed in 2014, was admitted to processing and an order to investigate the Brigade Police Crime Investigation Tome emanated by the Local Prosecutor of that Commune. Next March 10, 2015 will be the first hearing took between artist Alejandro Escribano and his counsel and offended and representatives of Coca-Cola suspicion of plagiarism. The photographs of the original and plagiarism are awesome. Attached comparative photographs of the work. The copy was made without the permission of the artist, not even his name or authorship is mentioned, which is clearly an offense under Law 17.336 on intellectual property in Chile.

   Sadness gives remember the harsh treatment that exerts justice against humble people who pirate movies and hesitant to act when faced with large companies.
