My presentation for this year’s K12Online Conference, Steal This Preso: Copyrights, Fair Use, and Pirates in the Classroom!, is now live and viewable below. I’ve also included links to my favorite royalty free media sites and additional resources below.
BlipTV direct link to download video file
use this to download to your iPod or if DotSub is blocked in your district
BlipTV audio file
use this if you want only the audio portion of the presentation (not as fun)
Barely Legal Radio Program (available as podcast)
I’ve learned tons about copyrights and fair use from listening to Joe Escalante’s show. It’s entertaining as well as educational. I’ve recommended this before and it’s never caught on with other educators but if you are really interested in this topic, do check it out.
Public Domain Slider
Helps you identify if a work is in the public domain. Very cool. However, note that most work is not in the public domain.
Code of Best Practices in Media Literacy Education
I found this thanks to Joyce Valenza’s K12 Online presentation. It supports what I’m saying and expands upon it.
Lawrence Lessig’s Book, Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy
There are ways that current copyright law has not kept up with digital technologies. Lawrence Lessig explores this in his book. I recorded a section of this preso in which I talked about this but ultimately deleted for time and clarity.
