The Center for Social Media at American University is proud to announce the upcoming release of the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Media Literacy Education. This code is a step-by-step guide to fair use in an academic setting that enables teachers and students who use popular culture to know when their uses are legal.
The Code of Best Practices was created in collaboration with the Washington College of Law’s Program on Information, Justice and Intellectual Property and with our new partner Media Education Lab at Temple University. The Code will be released in hard copy in Philadelphia at the Kirby Auditorium on November 11, 2009, and is available online here.
