Navigating the Use of Video in Educational, Scholarly and Archival Contexts

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The climate surrounding the use of video in educational, scholarly and archival contexts has become increasingly challenging.  Letters sent to universities last year by the Motion Picture Association of America threatening against the unauthorized distributions of copyrighted video has had a chilling effect on campuses.  At the same time, a number of groups have developed fair use guidelines in an effort to create clarity surrounding the permissible uses of video in educational and scholarly contexts.  This panel will discuss different ways to navigate the legal risks surrounding the use of video for education, scholarship and archiving.  Among the questions that will be addressed are:  What are the legal risks involved with teaching with and archiving video content and how can you mitigate those risks?  Does adhering to fair use guidelines offer any legal protections?  Under what circumstances is it permissible to ‘rip’ videos from DVDs for educational or archival use?  What are some ways to address legal concerns involving the creation and distribution of appropriation video art?
