The third in a series of webinars focusing on open access, copyright, and fair use. Co-sponsored by ASERL, Boston Library Consortium (BLC), Greater Western Library Alliance (GWLA), Triangle Research Libraries Network (TRLN), and Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC). The lead presenters are Peter Jaszi and Brandon Butler of American University's Washington College of Law. Mark Jacobs Executive Director of the Washington Research Library Consortium, introduces the session. In this session, Jaszi and Butler discuss how pedagogy and scholarship grow and change with technology, that more and more of what university professors do implicates copyright. More than any other, fair use is the legal doctrine that empowers members of the academy to do their jobs without having to ask or pay for permission. The presenters describe the growth of the fair use doctrine and the ways that communities, including scholars, are taking advantage of their fair use rights to get things done.
