    Disney Copyright - A Fair(y) Use Tale

    Here's a video put together by a Professor to teach his class about Copyright Law and Fair Use.

    It's pretty clever and informative.

    From the original website -
    "Professor Eric Faden of Bucknell University provides this humorous,
    yet informative, review of copyright principles delivered through the words
    of the very folks we can thank for nearly endless copyright terms."

    Re: Disney Copyright - A Fair(y) Use Tale

    I have a qwuestion. Is there anything incopyright laws about a duration of non use or release? There are tons of things that comapanies still claim copyright on that they only released once in one form (for example records from many years ago). I know that people should have freedom to do that but at least things like that should have to be preserved for later generations like a library or something. The reason I bring this up is that there are a ton of recordings that have only been released in vinyl from. There were only so many of them pressed. REcords are easily broken. If no one preserves at least one when the last record breaks, or is destroyed, either on purpose or by accident, the musical recording is lost forever. While books are collected and preserved thanks to the library of Congress I think the same should also go for other recorded copywritten works.

    Theer was a time for a few years where I wanted to find a way to get a working turntable, attach it to my computer, via cords and start digitalizing record collections (for a fee) and than take those records and donate them to the local library for preservation (espeically obscure, out of print records and albums). However I didn't want to get crossed in the legalities of the issue and thought of something better to do.
