What's Fair? A Report on the Proceedings of the National Conference on Educational Fair Access and the New Media (Washington, D.C., June 15-17, 1994).
Agency for Instructional Technology, Bloomington, IN.
Under U.S. Copyright Law, there are certain circumstances in which copyrighted material can be used without permission from the copyright holder: for news reporting, criticism, research, and teaching. The existing guidelines for fair use do not, however, address issues of use arising from new developments in technology and media. This volume of proceedings is from a conference on copyright law, education-related fair use, and the new electronic media. Conference participants included copyright experts, representatives of educational institutions, and producers of copyrighted material. Keynote addresses and selected papers are included here: (1) "A New Framework for Educational Uses of Copyrighted Works" (Robert Wedgeworth); (2) "Multimedia Patent and Copyright Issues: The Need for Lawmakers to Be Multimedia Literate" (Fred T. Hofstetter); (3) "Register of Copyright Perspective" (Barbara Ringer); (4) "Department of Commerce and Patent and Trademark Office Perspective" (Bruce A. Lehman); (5) "Copyright Issues from the Perspective of an Academic Administrator" (Michael Ribaudo); (6) "Corporate Perspective" (Jon A. Baumgarten); (7) "Getting Your Music's Worth Beyond Fair Use" (Bill Mullin); (8) "Guidelines for Multimedia Productions: A Copyright Owner's View" (Bernard R. Sorkin); (9) "Association for Information Media and Equipment Perspective" (Charles Benton); (10) "Managing Intellectual Property on the Net" (Robert C. Heterick, Jr.); (11) "Use of Copyrighted Works in Multimedia: A Publisher's Perspective" (Carol A. Risher); (12) "Copyright Law: Providing Access to Information" (Charles Schneebeck); (13) "Position Statement of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology" (Hope Roland Botterbusch); (14) "Multimedia Development and Copyright Issues in the Maricopa Community Colleges" (Mary Lou Mosley); and (15) "New Media Centers Program: Forum for Research and Development of Multimedia Technologies in Education" (Kevin J. Howat). The volume also contains biographical sketches of the presenters, reports of the working committees, a summary of the open discussion on the last day of the conference, relevant sections of the 1976 U.S. Copyright Law, fair-use guidelines for books, music, and off-air videotaping, addresses of participants, and a list of suggested readings.
