Copyright & Fair Use

Today in my Collection Development class (INLS 513) we talked about the ways that copyright law affects libraries. Because copyright law in the US is so challenging to understand, we view several movies to help with our understanding. One student suggested that we check out the following film that uses Disney clips to explain copyright law. It’s adorable and informative — check it out!

Check back later this week for my holiday wish list series!
