Celebrate Fair Use Week with food, fair use, and fun at “The Fair Use Gameshow.” We’re partnering with copyright guru Kyle K. Courtney from Harvard’s Office for Scholarly Communication & staff from MIT’s Office of Digital Learning. Expert panelists will make arguments for and against fair use and the audience will vote: fair use or not? You decide! Who will win? Everyone wins when they better understand copyright and fair use.
Texas A&M Libraries are hosting an interactive, face-to-face, 1-hour session on Fair Use. This is an introductory session for all Library faculty and staff. The group activity and discussion will focus on four documents: ARL’s Fair Use Myths and Facts infographic, ARL’s Fair Use Fundamentals infographic, Kenny Crews’ The Text and Meaning of Fair Use, and Harvard University’s The Origin of Fair Use Comic.
