Fair Use and Free Speech in Documentary Film

Fair Use- legally quoting somebody else’s copyrighted music, pictures or words without paying or ask permission, if it benefits society more than its hurt the copyrighted holder.
According to Peter Jasz, Law Professor, American University, explained that copyright is not an absolute, but a conditional one. In our country under our laws in our constitution copyright exist for one purpose and one purpose only to promote the progress of science and use force. Because art doesn’t come from nowhere cultural progress depends on the ability of artists to make reasonable use of preexisting material and that includes copyrighted material. This is especially true today filmmakers who operate in media saturated environment in order to be able to comment on that environment in order to be able to depict that environment they need reasonable access to other people’s copyrighted material.

Creative Commons:
Attribution (by)- I didn’t know about the different symbols that creative commons possesses. Like the picture of a man, which is attribution is that you must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or license
Sharealike (sa)-Licensees may distribute derivative works only under a license identical to the license that governs the original

Noncommercial (nc)-Licensees may copy, distribute, display, and perform the work and make derivative works based on it only for noncommercial purposes.so copyleft.)
Non Derivative Works (nd)- Licensees may copy, distribute, display and perform only verbatim copies of the work, not derivative works based on it.

Creative Commons is a license platforms that recognize that there needs to be an easy to understand and a way for content creators to communicate their sharing choices that falls between “All rights restricted and public domain.”

Larry Lessig-Ted talks about remix culture

He explained that the content of the industry was a terror created by this technology, because broadcasting is a new way to spread content and therefore a new battle over the control of the business that will spread content. One side builds technologies, such as one recently announced that will enable them to automatically take down from sites like YouTube any content that has any copyrighted content in it, whether or not there’s a judgment of fair use that might be applied to the use of the content.

The icons you included are excellent! I love these so much I copied and pasted them into a separate word document, so that I can create a chart to help me navigate Creative Commons. I enjoyed your knowledge about YouTube and copyright issues. I recently posted on YouTube our cheer and dance teams spring show performances where it was necessary to include remix of music that they performed to. These were taken down because of the mix of songs included. Now, what is interesting is that YouTube actually supplied me with new music options to still allow the videos to be posted.
