Ask an expert about Fair Use

by

YouTube and the Center for Internet and Society are hosting a Fair Use question and answer session. From YouTube Blog: “Fair use is a legal term that grants creators an exception to the strict copyright that the original content owner controls — in layman’s terms, it’s the idea that as long as the use is “fair,” someone can reference part of someone else’s work for parody, scholarly reasons, or more.

What constitutes “fair use” is a complicated issue and one that we get asked about quite often. So we’ve asked two leading experts from the Stanford Center for Internet and Society (CIS), Anthony Falzone and Julie Ahrens, to help answer your questions.”

Anthony Falzone and Julie Ahrens, Executive Directors of the Fair Use Project, will be accepting questions until April 21 through Google Moderator. On May 2 they will answer questions on video and re-post the questions/answers on their CIS blog. Google Moderator will also allow you to vote on other questions you hope to have answered by Falzone and Ahrens.
