Description:

This resource comes from the School of Communications at American University. According to this report, "This document is a code of best practices that helps educators using media literacy concepts and techniques to interpret the copyright doctrine of fair use. Fair use is the right to use copyrighted material without permission or payment under some circumstances—especially when the cultural or social benefits of the use are predominant.... The guide identifies five principles that represent the media literacy education community’s current consensus about acceptable practices for the fair use of copyrighted materials."<p/> The principles address using media in creating and sharing our own curriculum, as well as student use of media in their own classroom projects. There is also a nice section on "myths of fair use."</p>
