UNIVERSITY Agenda for Fair Use

The Center for Social Media at American University and documentary filmmakers wrote a report on Best Practices in Fair Use to help navigate the waters of copyrighted materials and to determine when material use can be considered Fair Use. Much like documentarians, members of University communities are often riddled with questions as they create and express their work. How can we create Best Practices in Fair Use document for Universities similar to the one created for documentary filmmakers?

Facilitators: Lewis Hyde (Berkman Center Fellow), Patricia Aufderheide (Center for Social Media), Eric Gordon (Emerson College)
