Fair Use Is Your Friend video makes complex copyright easy

Today, American University’s Center for Social Media and AU Washington College of Law’s Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property, together with Stanford Law School’s Fair Use Project have put together a straight-forward video on what fair use is and isn’t in the world of online video (and beyond). The video is a 7 1/2 minute synopsis of what you’d learn if you had read their Code of Best Practices released in July 2008 which we covered here, and makes understanding fair use, and its importance in our society, easy.

Embedded below is the video. Kudos again to all that were involved.
