Announcing the Winner of the Public Knowledge “Copyright School” Video Challenge!

As you may recall, back in April, we announced the "Copyright School" Video Challenge, a contest that asked members of the video remix community to produce a more balanced educational video than YouTube's "Copyright School". Above, you can watch the winning entry, produced by Patrick McKay of Virginia Beach, Virginia. Patrick's video does a fantastic job of explaining the basics of fair use and encourages creators to exercise their rights by reusing, remixing and recontextualizing existing content in their videos. For his efforts, Patrick won $1000 and his video will be embedded on our "Copyright" issue page where it will educate fair users for years to come. Congratulations, Patrick and many thanks to all the entrants and to our celebrity judges!
