Code of Best Practices in Fair Use/Fair Dealing for OER Webinar and Workshop
Fair use and fair dealing are the rights to use copyrighted content without asking the rightsholder for permission. This statutory safeguard is key to a balanced copyright regime, allowing creativity and knowledge to flourish without constraint. Because the context in which librarians, teachers, musicians, journalists, and others rely on fair use varies, these and other communities have developed codes of best practices for fair use that are based on common scenarios in their fields. The newest code is on Open Educational Resources (OER), specifically what fair use enables with respect to using copyrighted material as “inserts.” The codes are not manuals—they are frameworks for decision-making according to community standards.
Join ARL and CARL on April 19th from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for a panel discussion of the new code of best practices in fair use for OER, including its Canadian appendix, and what’s next for codes of best practice in the US and Canada. Then, stay for an “off the record” workshop with the authors to build confidence in your own fair use of copyrighted materials for OER.
