Fair Use Ascendant:
Where Do We Stand After the Recent Copyright Victories for Higher Ed?
A presentation and discussion for librarians and faculty
Lead by Kevin Smith, Director of the Copyright and Scholarly Communications Office
In the past four months, we have seen positive rulings in two major copyright cases brought against universities and their libraries, and the dismissal of a third. These ruling have confirmed the importance of fair use in higher education, and they suggest that libraries and faculty members should feel more confident embracing fair use for certain kinds of online activities.
Come learn about these decisions—we will review each briefly and also discuss the ARL Code of Best Practices in Fair Use—and join a discussion about the opportunities they create.
