Fair Use and Balance in Copyright: Online Course Registration


The Center for Intellectual Property, a non-profit member association, will
be offering several online courses. The fall & spring Copyright Management &
Leadership courses include:

Fair Use and Balance in Copyright: The Best Practices Model.
Dates: November 8-19, 2010 (Register by 10/29).
Instructors: Patricia Aufderheide, Ph.D., & Peter Jaszi, J.D.

Description: What rights do new makers and users have to use copyrighted
material without permission or payment, and how do they convince their own
administrators that they have those rights? How risky is it to use those
rights, and how can those risks be mitigated? What’s at stake in exercising
and defending fair use and other balancing features of copyright, and how
does the balancing concept fit into the evolution and current reality of
copyright law and practice?

The two pioneering academics who changed industry practice with
best-practices codes for fair use explain both the law and the importance of
these new codes as tools for practitioners. They describe how new makers of
cultural material are designing and employing best practices codes that help
them use the rights they have under law. They explain the historical and
legal justifications for the fair use right (including why a defense can be
a right!), troubleshoot interpretations and explore with you how this model
could work in your community.
