Best Practices in Fair Use for Online Video

July 7th, 2008 by Dean Jansen

The Center for Social Media just released a white paper with guidelines for using copyrighted material in online video. Fair use is often misunderstood (and rightly so, it’s a complex law), so I’m pleased to have a set of clear guidelines to point people to.

This is an especially great resource for anyone doing remixes, mashups, or other pop-culture derivatives. I recommend the PDF version, as the formatting makes it much easier to digest.

    Are you familiar with the concept of “fair use”?

    It’s a set of exceptions to copyright, whereby a person can use portions of copyrighted material in their own work, without the permission or compensation of the copyright holder. I recommend you read the report if you’d like to know more.
