New Code helps teachers understand "Fair Use" of media materials in classroom

The Center for Social Media, the Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property, and the Media Education Lab have recently come out with a new "Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Media Literacy Education." While intended specifically for teachers in media literacy courses, there is a lot of useful information for educators of all stripes who use content from the media in their work -- whether it's a YouTube video, an excerpt from a song, or a quote from Harry Potter.  If you are a teacher and you don't fully understand what's allowed and not under the "Fair Use" provisions of copyright law, this is a helpful and concise resource.

You can download the full code from the Center for Social Media website.
