Copyright was the topic of a recent discussion I had with a group of educators, so I felt inspired to create a couple of resources addressing the topic. I hope you find them useful. The podcast is an overview of Fair Use and some tips and tools for teachers to use to teach students about copyright.
Resources referenced in the podcast include:
- Stanford University Library’s copyright and fair use page: http://fairuse.stanford.edu
- Fair Use criteria: PANE
- Purpose and character
- Amount and substantiality
- Nature of the work
- Effect on potential market
- Advanced Search Video: http://tinyurl.com/copyrightlove
- Creative Commons: http://search.creativecommons.org
- http://paperrater.com (Plagiarism checker)
- Another helpful site I used for some of the info in this episode is 10 Big Myths about copyright explained: http://www.templetons.com/brad/copymyths.html
The video is a quickie tutorial in using Google Advanced Search to find resources that have been specifically licensed for reuse or are part of the public domain.
